Drake Being Sued Over "Knockoff" Jewelry

(AllHipHop News) Another day, another copyright infringement lawsuit, except this one does not involve music. After news broke yesterday (9/11) that his fellow Young Money member Nicki Minaj is being sued over her song “Starships,” today Drake is now in the legal crosshairs of jeweler Michael Raphael.

TMZ is reporting that Raphael’s Baden Baden, Inc is suing the “Started From The Bottom” rapper over replicas of a $49,204 owl pendant. The suit stems from claims by the company that Drake illegally copied the platinum owl they made for him.

Baden Baden says Drake then gave the copied pendants to his friends. The jeweler is suing for unspecified damages and for the Drake to have to turn over the owl pendants.

Last month a lawsuit was also filed against Drake by his former stylist for alleged unpaid fees.

    Drake is an R&B legend, him and Robin Thicke should do a duet…It would be bigger than a Marvin Gaye and Barry White duet…..Respect Drake, he is a true icon in the game…..

    • Blazer

      riiiiiight… wtf!? Your delusional and deranged. What a bad call.

      • Prison_Wolf_Maleek

        Don’t hate on someone you have never met just because they are more successful than you ever will be in your life…Drake is King Of R&B right now, face the facts…..

      • Prison_Wolf_Maleek

        He is the greatest R&B singer to ever grip the mic…..He blows Sam Cooke out of the water while shitting on Otis Redding all at the same time when he sings….True and amazing talent, Drake will definitely go down in the History books as an all time great, no doubt!!!

    • Pherb Griff

      Drake is NOT an R&B anything. And he certainly is not a legend.

  • JerZeBoy

    Who? Who?…lol

  • MrNoName2K

    Damn lol niggas are gettin hungry.. get that money though..

  • johnblacksad

    erbody wants a piece of the pie

  • Tre C

    • jeezuz

      lmao that’s how a real nigga does!

      • Definitely!

      • Awesome

        Ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none.

  • Guillaume Pilon

    they just mad cuz he took the demo to his jew jeweler friend to save money

    • Prison_Wolf_Maleek

      Real talk….

  • PhilTheGreat

    Shiiiiit who knows maybe dudes take a lot of pride in their jewelry work. Would it be any different if someone went to the studio heard Drake’s song idea and then went and made the song without his approval?

    • KLewis

      But if you paid for Drake’s song idea “a la” a Birdman, then record ahead. Basically what I’m saying is, if Drake bought the chain, then he probably thought he had the right to the image..

    • Seriously

      its an owl pendant what damages did they receive???

  • Pherb Griff

    Drake sucks

  • Dubz

    50 stacks for a chain? No wonder yall get robbed.

  • Megaton

    Wonder if you can get sued for replicating a Jesus piece since no one knows what his real face looked like… FOH, this is trifling for the lawsuit.

    • Seriously

      i agree this is petty

      • melodicmizery

        this is not petty, the jeweler makes his business by designing the specific logo for the person if its custom jewelry. if thats your design and someone takes your design to someone else to get it replicated for cheaper and they havent bought the design then there not allowed to do that. i worked in music, and logo that was designed was bought and contracted outright. music is full of trademarks and patents and copyrights. you cant just take someone elses work and go somewhere else with it. so depending on who owns what will justify what happens. im not taking either side but im just explaining how things work

  • Yall know I always go left with the comments…I just want to say the it would have been great for the readers and the writer of this story to post a pic of this piece of jewlry in question….Out of all the photos of Drake and you all couldn’t find one with him wearing this pendant.I know that this is a “Hip Hop” website but you all gotta do better.
