EVH suing Nike

Only a matter of time. EVH is suing nike for copyright infringement. Apparently they are putting out shoes that look a bit like EVH new shoes he is selling. Frankly, I am surprised Converse is not suing EVH as his shoes look a lot like All-stars to me.

Re: EVH suing Nike

No kidding... saw this earlier. I guess whatever pays the bills at this point, because selling 30k strats and playing guitar just isn't cutting it anymore.

Re: EVH suing Nike

It's a blatant ripoff. The Nike's have his stripes on the soles. If he has the patent/copyright protection he is completely within his rights to file a claim against them.

Re: EVH suing Nike

I agree. But I also think EvH's shoes are blatant ripoffs of converse.

EVH's lawyers drum up this ****, and normally the targets don't have the pockets that Nike has. I hope Nike bust his ass with tort!

Eddie must use the same firm as Monster Cable.

EVH has the best lawyers in the world.

Eddie sues you for breathing the same air he does.

Re: EVH suing Nike

Well maybe World Vision, Compassion and the governments of Africa and China should sue Nike for having child slaves involved in making their shoes.

Yes, I'm serious.
