IVIKE, Can We Have Just a Little More Space?

IVIKE, Can We Have Just a Little More Space?

Hat tip to Sri for capturing this image of a passing by backpack, illustrating how much a little spacing can end up making all the difference in the world, when it comes to brand identity:

To the extent, IV IKE, I VIKE, or even IVIKE might be a legitimate backpack brand, when the letter “I” is tilted and compressed together with VIKE, it’s difficult not to see what seems likely to be the intended meaning and infringing impression: NIKE.

Compression undoubtedly works to the advantage of the provider of the IV IKE, I VIKE, or IVIKE branded backpack, and to the disadvantage of consumers by deceiving them not only as to source, but likely fraud as to the federal registration status too.

Probably no surprise, but my brief search revealed no such federal registrations and the website leads to a collection of apparent Chinese characters, anyone able to translate?
