Blog: Leonie BarrieStick the stick man

Nike used a similar image in its "Creativity in Sports" campaign in 2002. Nike's lawyer makes the point that stickmen have been around since stoneage times. So why did it pay an American advertising agency 25 million yuan ($3 million) to design a similar logo?
