Dr. Dre Loses Trademark Fight Against Real Doctor
The rapper recently lost his trademark fight against a real gynecologist. The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ruled in a filing dated Thursday. Dre (real name Andre R. Young) opposed Dr. Draion M. Burch, who wanted to trademark the name “Dr. Drai.” The rapper claimed that Drai’s potential trademark would cause confusion amongst consumers, and suggest a connection between him and the gynecologist.
