Run-DMC Suing Walmart and Amazon for $50 Million

Run-DMC is suing Walmart and Amazon and I’m sure we all know exactly for what reason. If you’ve walked around a Walmart or shopped around on Amazon, I’m sure you’ve at least once encountered a Run-DMC logo on a t-shirt. The group is suing both companies for trademark infringement on selling bootleg merchandise with their logo on it. With their logo being seen on multiple items like t-shirts, sweaters, wallets, hats, and more, they filed a lawsuit this Thursday in New York planning on getting their money back. CNN says, “Run-DMC says in the suit that it has made $100 million on trademarked products over the years.” The group is expected to release new merchandise coming in 2017.
