The Facts of Life: Can hip-hop trump a vagina? Not in court it can’t

From 538 Significant Digits (and this is all I have to say about it):


Dr. Dre, hip-hop star, has lost a trademark lawsuit against Dr. Drai, gynecologist. Dre, who founded a company that later sold to Apple for $3 billion, objected in 2015 when Dr. Draion Burch tried to trademark “Dr. Drai.” Burch has a brisk business charging $5,000 per speaking engagement and selling his book, “20 Things You May Not Know About A Vagina.” The ruling said Dr. Dre, who is not a medical doctor, failed to demonstrate that people would be confused when purchasing Dr. Drai’s wares.
