Ludacris

Ludacris has launched a lawsuit against a Texas couple using the phrase “Disturb tha peace” in relation to audio equipment and recordings. He claims that they are infringing the trademark of his Disturbing Tha Peace record label, which he founded in 2000.

In papers filed last month, reports TMZ, the rapper is asking for a judge to rule that Demetri and Donna Evans-Brown should be forced to stop using the phrase, as well as pay him damages and legal costs.
