Dr. Dre’s Beats Electronics is taking action against the sale of fake Beats by Dre headphones. According to court documents obtained by TMZ.com, Beats has filed a lawsuit against several China-based websites that peddle the phony headphones. Apparently, the websites have raked in more than 135-billion-dollars from the knock-offs. Dre’s camp is suing for the ill-gotten profits as well as the rights to the domain names where the fakes are sold.
Dr. Dre and his Beats Electronics co-founder Jimmy Iovine recently sold the company to Apple for three-billion-dollars.
