Run-DMC Sues Wal-Mart and Amazon For $50 Million
(AllHipHop News) Run-DMC is defending their famous logo from counterfeiters in a new $50 million lawsuit aimed at two of the world’s biggest retailers.
Reps for the famous rap group’s new clothing line filed the huge lawsuit against Wal-Mart and Amazon for selling a variety of knock off products with the iconic Run-DMC logo.
The claims there are a variety of bootleg products being sold through both of the retailers, including T-shirts, hats, wallets and other items.
Back in October, Run-DMC announced their “RUN-CTY” line licensed apparel featuring the group’s legendary logo with Fanatics, a global leader for officially licensed sports merchandise.
The group is expected to rollout their new line around the world in 2017.
Reps for the Run-DMC brand are seeking at least $50 million in damages according to the lawsuit.
