I just love Rick - always calls a spade a spade.
There have been MANY attempts at reverse-hijacking of domain names involving companies far larger than these guys in Brazil. Barbie.com comes to mind - guy registered the domain for his daughter who's name is "Barbie". Another involves a well-known Japanese company trying to reverse hijack a domain from a gentlemen who shares the same last name. Don't remember the name, or if it's been resolved, but was/has been in court for over a decade.
Have a handful of ACTIVE domains that were registered before some well-known companies were in existence. On domain a company registered something similar and even copied elements of the logo. Quick C&D letter and they closed up shop.
Go get 'em Rick! You're story is already sweeping the internet...Salty kisses, Sandy toes, and a Pirate's heart...

Jorge moved to Affiliate Legal Lounge for future reference.
Rick should counter and go after their .br domain based on copyright.
