Dr. Dre Loses Trademark Legal Battle To OBGYN “Dr. Drai”

Artist Dr. Dre took a loss in the weird way on Tuesday. According to the BBC, Dr. Dre lost a trademark to gynecologist Draion Burch, who sought to trademark the name Dr Drai.

The BBC said that the musician “objected, saying the similarity could cause ‘confusion,’ especially as his near-namesake wanted to sell audio books and seminars under the moniker.”

Dr. Burch argued in court that Dr. Dre is not a real doctor and, well, he has a point.

What a strange battle for him to fight.
