Eddie Van Halen Files Lawsuit Against Nike
KTLA reports that EDDIE VAN HALEN filed a lawsuit against Nike in Los Angeles Friday (June 12th), alleging the company used the trademarked striped design from his guitar on their new line of "Dunk Lows" tennis shoes.
The Nike shoes feature red, white and black streaks along the midsole.
The suit states that Van Halen received a 2001 copyright for the design on the body of his "Frankenstein" electric guitar.
Court papers allege that Nike infringed on that copyright by using the design on sneakers without "consent, approval or license."
