Ludacris Sues Texas Couple For Copyright Infringement Of Disturbing Tha Peace

Ludacris is taking a Texas twosome to court over allegedly stealing his label's name.

Even though it's hardly a household name like G.O.O.D. Music or the Roc, Ludacris' label Disturbing Tha Peace has racked up a number of successes in its twelve year run. Now, it looks like Luda is taking a Texas couple to court over the name of his imprint.

According to a recent report from TMZ, Ludacris has filed suit against Demetri and Donna Evans-Brown copy illegal use of his copyrighted name. The Texas-based couple has been using the phrase "Disturb Tha Peace" in marketing their audio equipment and recording business.

Luda claims that he's owned the copyright to the aforementioned phrase since 2003 and that the couple's use of the name will mislead consumers over his affiliation with the products. Luda is suing the duo for damages and lawyer's fees

    You can't copyright a name. Don't you mean trademark? So much for accuracy. Fake ass bloggers are just reporting anything. Womp, womp.

    Good luck getting a settlement on a trademark based on a commonly used phase.

      "lol way to start an article. bias mother fuckers." Right. Sean Ryon sucks for this.

    It has nothing to do with money.. You think Sony needs money? They'd sue if you used any of their slogans. Same for any other brand.. it has nothing to with gangster or money. But, judging by the comprehension level on this site.. I am guessing y'all didn't get an education that can help you see past it's either "gangster" or "not gangster".

      Most things in life revolve around money. If Luda wasn't interested in money he wouldn't have sued.

    Grace. you think Peggy`s remark is exceptional, yesterday I got a new BMW M3 when I got my cheque for $9829 this-past/five weeks and over 10-k last-month. without a doubt its the most comfortable work I've ever done. I started this five months/ago and almost immediately started making a nice minimum $70 per/hr. I follow instructions here..WWW.youtubeGoogle.qr.net/jO6k/watch?v=ca56lqIZXqE

    Pretty sure it's trademark infringement. Not copyright infringement. Two separate legal theories.
    • IDK
      Yea, true. I mean, suing for trademark infringement is a tiny bit frowned upon IMO, but at least Ludacris isn't going all Metallica and suing for getting his music shared and downloaded.

      first reply got it right, its all about rep behind a brand. Luda won't make shit off suing em, but he keeps his label legit. Watch American Gagnster and see how Frank Lucas deals with Kats trying to bite the Blue magic brand name
