Dr. Dre Just Lost A Trademark Battle To A Gynecologist Named Dr. Drai

first_imgBringing this wonderful tale to an end, The US Trademark Court recently dismissed Dr. Dre’s case against the Dr. Drai trademark. Given that Dr. Dre is a rap superstar and Dr. Drai is a gynecologist, the two are on fairly divergent career paths, and the Trademark Court noted that the chances of fans becoming confused between the two are slim to none.[H/T Billboard] It turns out that for three years, Dr. Dre has been in a heated trademark dispute with a gynecologist and actual doctor named Draion M. Burch, who more commonly goes by Dr. Drai. Dr. Drai has become a media personality over the years in his own right, having published books like 20 Things You May Not Know About The Vagina and increasingly hosting seminars and events around the country.Burch attempted to trademark his nickname, Dr. Drai, back in 2015. However, Dr. Dre tried to block the trademark, citing that the similarity between the names was confusing and could suggest a connection between the hip-hop mogul and the gynecologist. In response, Burch fought Dre’s assertion, more or less responding that it wasn’t confusing because he is a real doctor and Dr. Dre is not.As the motion stated, “It is not likely that consumers will recognize Applicant’s Dr. Drai’s marks as referring to Dr. Dre because Dr. Dre is not a medical doctor nor is he qualified to provide any type of medical services or sell products specifically in the medical or healthcare industry.”Dr. Drai also explained that he doesn’t even want to be associated with Dr. Dre, noting that the rapper’s lyrics are misogynistic and homophobic and that those views are “a bad reflection on me as a doctor.” Hilariously, Dr. Drai also noted that he should be able to use the moniker, Dr. Drai, because “That’s my name.”last_img read more

Aikey collects Sunoco bonus on record night at Indee

first_imgINDEPENDENCE, Iowa (May 23) – One of Independence Motor Speedway’s winningest drivers went home with a bonus following his latest checkered flag run, on a record setting opening night.  By Jerry Mackey The headliner of the night was the 25-lap IMCA Sunoco Late Model feature. Jeff Aikey drew the pole position and went on to drive the Rick Dralle-owned no. 77 to a comfortable win. The race went flag to flag with Aikey taking the win and first $250 Sunoco Race Fuels bonus of the season over Eric Pollard and Sean Johnson.  Saturday mid-day rains made for very challenging conditions at Indee but thanks to the never say die attitude of co-promoter Justin Temeyer, the new season got underway on Saturday night with­out fans in attendance due to the Covid-19 restrictions. The record 161 drivers in attendance gave a very big shout out to Temeyer and partner Mick Trier for making the racing happen.  Kaden Reynolds established himself as a driver to be reckoned with in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock division. Reynolds took the action packed win over Billy Rhodes and Tyler Ollendieck. It was an all Murty front row in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main event. The elder of the two, Da­mon Murty fought off the challenges of his son Dallon early before Steve Meyer snuck between the two. Damon went on to get to the checkers first ahead of Meyer and Dallon Murty.   Jeff Aikey took the opening night IMCA Sunoco Late Model feature win and took home the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels bonus given Saturday at Independence Motor Speedway. (IMCA Photo) Tony Olson shot to the high side on the very fast track in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod main from his second row start and took the lead from pace setter Kip Siems. Olson scored the opening night win ahead of Jayden Schmidt, who made the long tow from Seymour, WI. Siems rounded out the top three on opening night.   Aikey also sat on the pole for the IMCA Modified main event, but Troy Cordes had his 71C ma­chine dialed in, raced from a third row start and overtook Aikey and cruised on to the win ahead of Jordan Hicks and Darin Duffy.  last_img read more
