Nike's iconic Jordan Jumpman logo design is one of the best sports logos around, and the sportswear giant doesn't take kindly to imposters. Currently on its radar is Colorado's Skiman LLC, whose logo appears to show what Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan might look like had he taken to the pistes rather than the basketball court.

Nike has sent the company a bunch of cease-and-desist letters and asked Skiman to voluntarily cancel its trademark. But the ski apparel brand's founder has vowed to fight to defend a logo that he says he designed himself (see our own guide to how to design a logo).
