A founding member of the legendary rap group, Run-D.M.C has filed a lawsuit in the US accusing Wal-Mart, Amazon and other
retailers of infringing on the group’s copyright.

The legal complaint further alleges that the defendants are ‘advertising, selling, manufacturing, promoting and distributing multiple products in Run-DMC’s trademarked name and confusing the public as to the source of origin and endorsement of its products.’
The items alleged to have been infringed upon include hats, glasses, patches, shirts, wallets and other items.
