Little Match Man Case Overturned

The Beijing High People's Court yesterday overturned the 2004 verdict granting Zhu Zhiqiang $36,000 and a public apology from Nike for what he felt was use of his "Little Match Man" stick figure. Zhu will now pay court costs of approximately $5,000. You'd think the fact that the stick-figure design intially cost the company $3 million from a US advertising agency would be cause for aggressive litigation of its own.
