Kawhi Leonard loses ‘Klaw’ lawsuit against Nike
A federal judge Wednesday rejected NBA star Kawhi Leonard’s claims that Nike unlawfully copyrighted his “Klaw’’ logo.
U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman ruled that the logo Nike designers helped create with Leonard marked an “independent piece of intellectual property’’ that was distinct from the original sketch Leonard initially conceived and shared with Nike.
TMZ posted the designs:
This is a rare setback for Leonard, who has dominated the last year.
