Ludacris Hit With Trademark Lawsuit
RapperÃ‚Â LudacrisÃ‚Â has been hit with a new trademarkÃ‚Â lawsuit.
Demetri Brown and Donna Evans-Brown have accused the star of filing papers last year (Mar11) and trying to dupe lawmakers into believing they renamed their audio/visual firm Disturb The Peace after he created and trademarked hisÃ‚Â record labelÃ‚Â Disturbing Tha Peace.
Brown and Evans-Brown maintain they came up with the name for their enterprise in 1988.
The papers were filed on Monday (01Oct12) at the U.S.Ã‚Â District CourtÃ‚Â for the NorthernÃ‚Â DistrictÃ‚Â of Dallas, Texas andÃ‚Â the BrownsÃ‚Â are now seeking an injunction and a cease-and-desist order preventing the Act a Fool hitmaker from using the phrase.
According to Fastmaza.com, the complaint reads, “Defendants have and continue to knowingly use the name, Disturbing Tha Peace inÃ‚Â commerceÃ‚Â with actual knowledge that it infringes on Plaintiff’s trademark Disturb The Peace.”
