Run-DMC sues Amazon, Walmart, and more for $50 million

You know what they say about trademark law: It’s tricky, tricky, tricky. Reuters reports Run-DMC founder Darryl “DMC” McDaniels filed a lawsuit Thursday in New York seeking at least $50 million from Amazon, Walmart, and a number of other retailers. The lawsuit accuses the retailers of infringing on the Run-DMC trademark and “trading on the goodwill” of the hip-hop legends by “advertising, manufacturing, selling, and distributing multiple products” that imply they were officially endorsed by Run-DMC, according to USA Today. Those items include DMC’s trademark glasses, as well as shirts, hats, patches, wallets, and more items “too numerous to properly list” that bear the Run-DMC name.
