Dr. Dre Sues Over Counterfeit Headphones
If you think you can reproduce Dr. Dre’s popular, money-making headphones and get away with it, you’re sadly mistaken.
An unnamed company over in China is learning that lesson the hard way, because the businessman has filed a billion dollar lawsuit against the corporation for replicating Beats by Dre, according to TMZ.
The bootleggers have collected more than $135 billion from their counterfeited headphones line, which are reportedly cheaply made and bear the same red “b” logo as the original product.
Dre wants to stop sales of the forgeries and collect all of the profits from the knockoffs to protect his trademark.
Looks like the mogul could have more billions coming his way.
