Nike Granted Interim Injunction Against adidas for Patent Infringement

We don't know about you, but we definitely were scratching our heads when adidas unveiled their new PrimeKnit shoe back in July, rivaling Nike's previously-detailed Flyknit collection. The similar technology was evidently a little too close for the Swoosh's liking, as the brand has recently been awarded interim injunction against adidas and their PrimeKnit offerings, forcing the Three Stripes to cease manufacturing and distribution of the shoe in Germany. The next step in the process for Nike will be an attempt to obtain permanent injunction. Read Nike's official statement here.
