Definitely. Either WL probably thought he’d get away with it. Staple knows better. At least I think he does.It could be that the SB Dunk has a different patent date of 2002, which would mean the patent is still active. The other thing is trademark, which don't expire. Logos, names like "Dunks," etc. are all trademarked. He screwed up pretty big by putting the swoosh on there.
I wasn't sure about copyright for products since it thought that was usually for writing/other forms of art, but I came across this. "A product design that is sufficiently original does have copyright protection as an artistic work." If that applies for dunks the copyright lasts 120 years.
Staple was dumb enough to sing off on those, so I doubt it. He's probably going to come out with some statement like, "Someone from my team approved this without my knowledge, we will be handling this situation...blah blah blah."Definitely.
