Ludacris Sues Texas Couple
Via TMZ reports:
Ludacris says his record label “Disturbing tha Peace” has a reputation to uphold — so he’s slapping a Texas couple with a lawsuit accusing them of jacking his company’s name.
Luda — real name Chris Bridges — filed legal docs this month … claiming Demetri and Donna Evans-Brown are illegally using the phrase “Disturb The Peace” for their audio equipment biz and musical recordings.
But Luda says he’s owned the trademark for “Disturbing tha Peace” since 2003 — it’s also the title of his 2005 album — and the couple’s use of a similar name will confuse customers and ruin his primo rep.
Luda is asking a judge to force the Browns to stop using the trademark ASAP — and he’s suing for damages, plus attorneys’ fees.
When you starting a company or putting out a new product make sure you do your homework and find what name is LEGAL to use. For example, if you were to open a fast food joint and name it Burger King, don’t should be surprised if people with suits walk in to know whats up.
