Dr. Dre — who just made a fortune selling off Beats headphones — wants to stop cheap, Chinese-made knockoffs from jacking his reputation … so his company is suing alleged counterfeiters for what could easily be BILLIONS of dollars!
In the lawsuit, Beats claims a nefarious group of unnamed websites based in China … are getting filthy rich selling cheaply-made, counterfeit headphones, bearing the red “b” logo — and raking in more than $135 BILLION in revenue.
Beats points out it’s the headphone of choice for Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Diddy and tons of other celebs … according to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ — so it has a vested interest in protecting its trademark.
Beats is suing to stop all sales of the forgeries … and to take over all of the domain names used by websites hawking the fakes.
Dre and co. also want ALL profits from the head-phonies. And that’s no dim sum.
