Sick Of It All File Trademark Infringement Suit Against Mobb Deep & Supreme (Updated)


0

The camp of veteran NYHC outfit Sick Of It All have filed suit against multi-platinum hip hop outfit Mobb Deep and lifestyle brand Supreme over a logo dispute. Bush Baby Zamagate, Inc., who oversee the trademarks and IP for Sick Of It All, have filed suit for copyright infringement over a logo utilized by Mobb Deep and Supreme on a clothing collaboration earlier this year.

The design in question is a dragon, which Sick Of It All claim to have been using since 1987. Mobb Deep‘s version of said logo meanwhile has been in use by the group since the mid-90s. The suit seeks to block the Mobb Deep camp and Supreme from future usage of the design and also seeks compensatory damages.

A copy of the complaint has been obtained by hiphopdx.com, who have posted it online. Per that complaint, Bush Baby Zamagate, Inc. allege that they previously brought an infringement complaint against Mobb Deep over the logo two times prior, most recently in 2003. Per the suit, they were seeking that the duo cease and desist using the logo and provide an accounting of merchandise sold with it. According to the suit, the Mobb Deep camp refused to comply with those demands at the time.

Update: October 17th, 2023 11:47am:

As pointed out by commenter cma3583 below, Sick Of It All and Mobb Deep previously collaborated together on the 2000 rap and metal compilation ‘Loud Rocks‘, teaming up for a cover of Mobb Deep‘s “Survival Of The Fittest“.
