Van Halen Sues Nike

According to Rolling Stone, "Eddie Van Halen’s red, white and black splatter-striped “Frankenstrat” guitar is one of the Van Halen leader’s true signatures. In fact, it’s so closely associated with the guitarist, Van Halen had the color scheme copyrighted in 2001. Now he’s suing Nike because he says the sportswear giant put a similar design on one of their Dunk Lows sneakers, Spinner reports."

In related news, James Hetfield is suing Eddie Van Halen for shamelessly copying the metal god cliche of becoming a drug addict and then, after cleaning up, getting a short haircut and fake tan.
