Dre (real name Andre Young) has tried to block the application on the grounds that it could cause confusion between the two brands and falsely suggest a connection between them.
Last week, the trial and appeal board of the US Patent and Trademark Office dismissed Dr. Dre’s challenge.
Dre didn’t issue a comment after the ruling. But buried in the 49-page document is a quote from Drai which summed up how he felt about the matter:
“I was just appalled how someone would think that I wanted to be them and I actually went to medical school.”
