A court case initiated by Dr. Dre in 2015 against a gynecologist has been settled after a trademark court ruled in favour of the gyno.
Dr. Draion M. Burch, a practicing Pennsylvania gynecologist, women’s health media personality and author, trademarked his name “Doctor Drai OBGYN and Media Personality.” Dr. Dre objected, saying that such a similar sounding name would “cause confusion” amongst consumers.
To be clear, Dr. Dre releases albums with titles like The Chronic while Dr. Drai (an actual doctor) writes books with titles like 20 Things You May Not Know About a Vagina.
I know. So easy to mix up, right? That things anyone wants is hitting up Dr. Drai for a pair of headphones while other women call up Dr. Dre to make an appointment for a pap smear. Then again, that test might uncover a condition that is chronic. Hmm.
Whatever. Case dismissed
