Dr. Dre’s Beats Electronics Allegedly Suing Chinese Counterfeiters For ‘Billions’
Counterfeits have reportedly been mooching off of Dr. Dre.
According to TMZ, Chinese-based websites have tried to mimic his Beats Electronics design and now Apple’s latest acquisition is fighting back in a lawsuit. Docs reportedly say that Beats wants the sites to stop making knockoffs that sports the “b” logo, which have racked up over $135 billion, in revenue.
The company wants to get a hold of ownership over the Chinese-based domains that are selling their goodies for cheap, and of course, receive their billion-dollar profits. Beats wants to protect their trademark and named-dropped a few celebs, including Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Diddy, who use their popular products.
