Dr. Dre is on the offensive! As reported from AllHipHop.com, Dr. Dre has filed a law suit against Yamaha. The Beats By Dre company believes Yamaha’s, PRO series headphones copied Dre’s Beats Electronics headphones in the exact design. Dre is seeking $75,000 in the suit on the basis of Trade Dress Infringement, Unfair Competition and Patent Infringement.
“Consumers appreciated the design, as well as the sound quality, of Beats and began wearing the Beats headphones around their necks as a fashion accessory even when not listening to music,” the suit reads. “In fact, the design of the Beats headphones has been a significant driver of the commercial success of the products.”
