Iconic hip-hop group Run-DMC has beef with Amazon, Walmart and other retailers, and it's turned into a $50 million lawsuit. Darrell D.M.C. McDaniels, a co-founder of the group, accuses the retailers of infringing on the quote, extremely valuable Run-DMC trademark brand by using its logo on merchandise without permission, that the group's lawyers say is a violation of federal trademark laws.
Run-DMC, founded in New York City in 1981 with Joseph Run Simmons, is famous as one of the breakthrough hip-hop acts as their music crossed over with hits like, Walk This Way, It's Tricky and My Adidas, a classic old-school brand they continue to endorse. Amazon, Walmart and other defendants have yet to comment on the complaint which was filed in the US District Court in Manhattan Thursday.
