Nike sues Reebok in NY

The frenzy over New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has reached shoemakers Nike and Reebok.
Nike Inc. claims in a lawsuit that Reebok is using Tebow's name on Jets-related apparel without permission.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan.
It seeks unspecified damages. The claims include misappropriation of publicity rights; interference with business relationships; and unjust enrichment.

The lawsuit says Reebok International introduced new products with Tebow's name after the quarterback was traded from the Denver Broncos to the Jets.
