Run-DMC Suing Amazon, Walmart, & Other Retailers For Using Their Trademarked Name On Products! Get The Deets!

This court battle could get a little tricky.

Run-DMC filed a $50 million lawsuit on Thursday, accusing Walmart, Amazon, Jet, and other retailers of selling products that traded on the group's name without permission.

Court documents list founding member Darryl "DMC" McDaniels as the plaintiff in the suit — which alleges that the retailers are "advertising, selling, manufacturing, promoting and distributing multiple products" in the King of Rock performers' trademarked name.

These knockoff products include glasses, hats, T-shirts, patches, wallets, and other merchandise — which McDaniels says "confuse the public as to the source of origin and endorsement of its products."

The lawsuit alleged that the vendors have improperly profited from and harmed the "extremely valuable" Run-DMC brand, and have also knowingly "harmed RUN-DMC's ability to utilize, market, promote and sell products with its registered trademark."

The suit didn't state how many products were ripped off, because the "number of infringing materials sold by Amazon, Jet and Wal-mart are too numerous to properly list." Yikes!

Amazon and Wal-Mart, which owns Jet, have not commented on the lawsuit — and neither have McDaniels or former member Joseph "Run" Simmons.

In response to the controversial cup, concerned citizens made a Change.org petition demanding the stores remove it from their shelves and websites immediately.

Following the outrage, Walmart released the following statement on Twitter:
