    Default Ed very busy..with yet another lawsuit

    LOS ANGELES -- Guitarist Eddie Van Halen filed a lawsuit against Nike in Los Angeles Friday, 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."

    Van Halen claims Nike is doing "irreparable harm and damage" to his signature design. He is seeking general and punitive damages, all profits arising from the sales of "Dunk Lows" and a permanent injunciton halting production of the Nike shoes.

    Van Halen recently launched his own line of striped chucks under his EVH brand.

    Damn! Eddie's lawyers mean business with this one, don't they?

    Oh well, right or wrong, good or bad, ELVH, Inc. DOES have a case.

    How about the Ed Hardy t-shirts with the VH like logo on the front? If you look at them from a distance, it looks like the VH logo from the first album.

    The only "dunk" there is the obvious TM infringement, but whoa...those are ugly.

    Well, of course Ed isn't patrolling the internet and the like - it's his legal goons doing the dirty work in trying to protect a TM of ELVH, Inc. But from a legal perspective, Edward Van Halen is the one who is suffering a loss, allegedly, and is therefore the one who stands to gain. So Ed's at the root of it all.

    But man, thems some ugly ass shows, ain't they?!?!

    Too bad he has not employed such a team to sniff out new music, going back over a decade now.

    For such a disfunctional band, its amazing how on the ball his legal team is !!!

    Nike definitely stealing the EVH design on those sneakers, no doubt about that.

    Well, I usually call Ed out on shit like this when new tunage has been lacking, but this one seems fairly blatant.
