EXCLUSIVE: Run-DMC – Drops $50 Million Lawsuit against Wal-Mart And Amazon over Unauthorized Merch
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Run-DMC has headed to court to drop their $50 million dollar lawsuit against Wal-Mart and Amazon – over unauthorized merchandise – with the band filing docs to dismiss the entire case earlier today.
Back in December, the Run-DMC brand slapped Wal-Mart and Amazon with a $50 million dollar lawsuit.
The legendary hip-hop group claimed the retail giants have been hawking products with their logo … everything from t-shirts, glasses, wallets, hats etc. They said the companies never obtained permission to use their logo. Run-DMC said their logo is extremely valuable and even pulled in $1.6 million from an Adidas deal. They filed suit for $50 million dollars in damages.
Then on February 24th, the band headed to court and filed docs to voluntarily dismiss the entire lawsuit against Wal-Mart and Amazon. Neither company had responded to the allegations in the massive lawsuit prior to the dismissal.
