Run-DMC Hits Walmart and Amazon With $50 Million Lawsuit Over Fake Merchandise
Run-DMC has sent Walmart and Amazon a $50 million lawsuit for trademark infringement of their brand name.
Run DMC filed a claim against the two big-box retailers for allegedly advertising, selling, manufacturing, promoting and distributing multiple products with their famous insignia without their permission.
The group says that Walmart and Amazon are allowing third-party retailers to sell wares such as hats, T-shirts, eyeglasses, wallets and others products with their “Run-DMC” logo plastered on them.
Run-DMC states in their lawsuit that their logo is highly valuable and referenced their $1.6 million deal with footwear brand Adidas. Reps for Walmart and Amazon had no comment on the matter.
TMZ posted a gallery of the alleged bootleg items and some of it looks very questionable. You can check them out here.
