Customize Your Nikes – But Be Careful What You Say
from the damn-sweatshops dept
For a little while now, Nike has allowed people to create custom shoes on their website. Apparently you can have the shoes say whatever you want, so long as it’s not a trademark, a profanity, or the name of an athlete. Well, now there’s another rule: they can’t say “Sweatshop” in reference to where the shoes will be made. An email exchange between a customer and Nike concerning whether or not Sweatshop can or cannot be put on shoes has been making the rounds.
