Dr. Dre Loses Trademark Battle With Gynaecologist

In 2015 Burch submitted applications to trademark'Dr. Drai and'Doctor Drai OBGYN and Media Personality to use for branding but was given a cease and desist letter from the rapper

Dr. Dre has reportedly lost his ongoing trademark dispute with a Pennsylvania-based gynecologist after Dr. Dre attempted to stop the gynecologist from trademarking the name Dr. Drai.

Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, filed a complaint in 2015 against the gynecologist, Draion M. Burch, saying that Burch's "Dr. Drai" moniker would cause "confusion" in the marketplace, as Burch meant to sell audio books and web seminars using the name. The rap legend objected to this application, claiming it could cause mass "confusion" for fans, consumers, and medical patients alike, especially considering the doctor planned to use this name on books and at medical conferences. Dre's reasoning for the case was that people would be mistaken and buy Dr Drai's products such as audio books.

Last week, the trademark office ruled against Dr. Dre, saying the rapper had failed to show that the public might be misled into purchasing products from Dr. Drai.


As Burch's typical fee for speaking engagements is $5,000 (£3,700), it's likely that customers would be cautious before parting ways with their cash. The gynaecologist further suggested that he was not keen on being assosciated with Dre, citing violent lyrics from his past hits as evidence.

Dr. Burch also claimed that using Dre's popularity and reputation would be "a bad reflection on me as a doctor", due to the rapper's controversial lyrical content.

The gynaecologist is the author of books such as 20 Things You May Not Know About A Vagina and describes himself as one of America's top health experts.
