Ludacris - Ludacris Fires Back At Label's Trademark Lawsuit

Subscribe Ludacris

Hip-hop star Ludacris has filed a countersuit in his ongoing legal battle over the name of his Disturbing tha Peace record label in a bid to shut down a rival firm.

Demetri Brown and Donna Evans-Brown sued the rapper in October (12), accusing him of trying to dupe lawmakers into believing they had renamed their audio/visual company Disturb The Peace after he had created and trademarked his record label Disturbing tha Peace.

Brown and Evans-Brown, who claim they came up with the name for their enterprise in 1988, demanded an injunction and a cease-and-desist order to prevent the Area Codes hitmaker from using the phrase, but now Ludacris is firing back.

In new court documents filed in Texas earlier this month (Dec12), the rapper insists he has owned the trademark for Disturbing tha Peace since 2003, and he wants the couple to be banned from using their company name to avoid any potential confusion with consumers.

Ludacris, real name Christopher Bridges, also declares the pair's continued use of the phrase could damage his firm's top quality reputation.

The papers state: "The alleged entertainment services offered under the Disturb the Peace mark are not of the same quality as those provided by Bridges under the Disturbing Tha Peace family of marks."

The rapper is seeking damages and court fees, reports
