“YUUUP” vs “YUUUP” – The Full Trey Songz Lawsuit

A variety of AllHipHop.com’s readers engaged in a heated debate regarding yesterday’s news about a lawsuit involving R&B singer Trey Songz.

Trey sent a cease and desist letter to David Hester of the reality TV series, “Storage Wars.”

It seems that Trey Songz felt that Hester’s use of the phrase “YUUUP” during the auction portion of the show, infringes upon his trademark call.

As a result, David Hester filed a full lawsuit against Trey, in order to continue to use the phrase.

Most of the comments pointed to the ridiculous nature of the lawsuit, while some defended Trey Songz.

You..can’t be serious..Is Trey really that hard out for some scrill? I mean..Storage Wars put me up on the auction game..Dave Hester’s YUUP is used by THOUSANDS of people who auction period..C’mon Son…that’s like Tony Yayo suing John Cena over the “you can’t see me” gesture….fail
IS HE SERIOUS? DOES HE KNOW OW LONG TREY SONGZ BEEN USING THAT. WAAAAAAAAAAAY BEFORE THE SHOW EVER AIRED…BETTER YET THOUGHT OF. DAVE HESTER PLS FIND SOMETHING ELSE BETTER TO DO WITH YOUR TIME AND EFFORT…LIKE REALLY?????

Could there be more at stake with this lawsuit? Is it really frivolous?

Take a look at the entire lawsuit and then decide!

    For the most part I thin trey songz and this show have 2 totally different fan bases. I don’t think any reasonable person would confuse or link the two. that’s just my opinion so I could be wrong…

  2. Royal_Chiefa

    I mean..after reading the paperwork..It’s even more idiotic…Even the
    documents clearly state that Trey’s is musical lyric..but that’s besides
    the point. You supposed to be Trey Songz..why did you bother to waste
    your time trying to sue David Hester when you have not a single leg to
    stand on in the courts with this..Who advised you to do this ignorant
    ish? Are you really mad that his man is helping himself make money off a
    word that thousands of people who attend auctions use? They just
    weren’t smart like Hester and Trademark it…I mean..if you really need
    cash..maybe you should go on tour..epic fail…

    Lol.Why did I already know who was suing Trey before I clicked on this article? I’m a big fan of Storage Wars.Lol,Dave is the sh*t.

    How are you going to take some stuff off the Andy Griffith show and act like you started it? Andy and Ron Howard (Opie) was saying that before Trey’s mama was born. Andy needs to send Trey a cease and desist. SMDH at this nonsense.

    THIS HERE IS ANOTHER REASON WHY COURT SHOULDN’T EXIST BUT I’M NOT TOO SURE IF A LOT OF YALL ARE READY FOR THE OTHER REASONS.

      Don’t blame the courts – this is why some lawyers shouldn’t exist. Both have filed frivolous lawsuits that the court will probably throw out.

        I don’t agree with the idea of our “system” as a whole. I’m in my World Leadership Mindset, so my comment was really on a whole different level.
