JUDGE DENIES ADIDAS MOTION ON SIZE OF LOGOS ON NCAA UNIS

          U.S. District Judge G.T. VanBebber denied adidas
     America's motion for a preliminary injunction regarding an
     NCAA bylaw that limits the size of logos on uniforms. 
     VanBebber ruled Friday that adidas failed to show there is
     the likelihood it will eventually prevail on the merits of
     its claims (NCAA).  adidas filed suit on November 12
     claiming that the NCAA's bylaw restricting the size of
     commercial logos on apparel violated federal antitrust laws. 
     VanBebber ruled that the bylaw prevents "member schools from
     turning their student-athletes into billboards in the
     pursuit of advertising revenues" (AP, 3/27).
