Run-DMC sues Amazon, others

Darryl McDaniels, one of the founding members of hip-hop group Run-DMC, and Run-DMC Brand LLC on Dec. 29 filed a trademark-infringement lawsuit against Amazon.com Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Jet.com Inc., Vision World Inc., Infinity Fashion Inc., SW Global Corp. and John Does 1-20 for using the group's name on clothing and accessories without permission.

Seeking $50 million in damages from the retailers and other defendants named in the suit, the plaintiffs claimed that the defendants allegedly violated federal trademark and New York unfair competition laws by "confusing consumers into believing that Run-DMC endorsed their products."

Also, the plaintiff is seeking a temporary restraining order to stop the defendants from directly or indirectly promoting, advertising, conducting, participating in and receiving or making any payments for any Run-DMC product.
