Dr. Dre Loses Trademark Dispute With Gynecologist

The music business icon couldn't stop the OB-GYN.

(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop has always had more than one "Dr. Dre." There's André "Doctor Dré" Brown from Yo! MTV Raps, and then there's the legendary producer/entrepreneur Andre "Dr. Dre" Young.

Apparently, Young took issue with yet another person with a similar sounding name. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer filed legal paperwork to prevent Pennsylvania resident Draion M. Burch from trademarking “Doctor Drai OBGYN & Media Personality."

The trademark office sided with Dr. Drai over Dr. Dre, giving the gynecologist the ability to use the moniker to promote his business. Besides making several appearances on television, Burch is also the author of 20 Things You May Not Know About The Penis.
