Nike: Just Coopt It
The working-class London borough of Hackney is furious that Nike is selling t-shirts with the Hackney logo without asking for permission to use (much less license) the decades-old icon. In keeping with their act first, act later practice, Nike has agreed to discuss the issue with Hackney.
I suppose this means that I can start selling shoes with a swoosh. If Nike disagrees, we can discuss whether they should get a piece of the action whenever they notice. I'm sure that they will be reasonable.
