    This is worse than Def Jam trying to sue Definitive Jux over "Def" and a three letter word that starts with J.

    At least narrow the scope of it to branded headphones and speakers, stop it there, so it can make some fucking sense. There's too many electronic things related to making beats for this to be allowed to extend outside of it's lane.

    Nothing wrong with what Dre is doing. He's protecting his trademark in it's category. Good for him.

    So the title of this article is sort of misleading and he's not trying to "own the words" beat or beats. He's protecting a trademark that he legally acquired.

    I don't see you freaking out when Bill Gates sues people for using MS trademarks, or Apple suing people for using theirs... Heck, Sony sued people who installed Linux on a PS3 they paid for.

    I love when blacks are making money. --- If they use the trademark within 009, sue'em Dre.
