  • Nike files countersuit against Kawhi Leonard over 'Klaw' logo

National Basketball Association star Kawhi Leonard has been hit with a countersuit by Nike, which accuses him of violating their deal together and wants a court to grant an injunction against him. According to a new report by TMZ, "Nike is countersuing for copyright infringement, fraud and breach of contract - and they're looking for a judge to stop Kawhi from using the design".

"In his Complaint, Leonard alleges he provided a design to NIKE". He also claims that he designed the logo and that Nike falsely claimed they designed it to the copyright office. That is true. What is false is that the design he provided was the Claw Design. It's one of the best logos in the sport and was featured on shoes and apparel.

"In this action, Kawhi Leonard seeks to rewrite history by asserting that he created the "Claw Design" logo, but it was not Leonard who created that logo".

The difference between Leonard's amateur sketch and Nike's professional logo are comical.

This will mark the first time in the Terminator film that an actor has played the role of Connor more than once. Cameron chimed in via a live broadcast from the set of the " Avatar " sequels.

The countersuit also reiterates later that Leonard is trying to take credit for the work of the logo's designers by saying he owns it despite only providing the initial rough draft of the design. Nike also says Leonard has acknowledged in the past that Nike came up with the final idea and made it what it is today.

Leonard launched a federal lawsuit against the sports apparel company in June, claiming that he still owned the logo - which he called the "Leonard Logo" - and that Nike had copyrighted it without his consent. Leonard and Jordan Brand parted ways in 2018 and has been blocked from using the logo on any of his merchandise.

This situation is starting to get really messy for the Fun Guy.
