Dr. Dre & Beats By Dre Sues Yamaha

Dr. Dre and Beats by Dre are suing Yamaha over headphones the company is manufacturing, which Dr. Dre claims infringes upon his Beats Electronics patents.

In a new lawsuit filed in California federal court, Beats by Dre says that it has revolutionized the use of headphones as a fashion accessory, and is alleging that Yamaha is trading off the goodwill of its products. Beats Electronics’ lawsuit alleges violations of patents and trade dress from Yamaha’s Pro 300, Pro 400 and Pro 500 lines of headphones.

Beats says that Yamaha has “brought to market a new line of headphones that copied the distinctive aspects of the Beats’ Headphones that comprise Beats’ Trade Dress Rights.”

In addition Beats shows off an advertisement that Yamaha was using to promote its new line. The suit argues that Yamaha’s advertisements for their headphones are profiting off of the success of Beats Electronics’ headphones and Dr. Dre’s standing in the music industry. Dre is seeking $75,000 in the suit on the basis of Trade Dress Infringement, Unfair Competition and Patent Infringement. Below is the advertisement.
