Rick Ross Wins Court Battle Over 2014 ‘Mastermind’ Album
Rick Ross just got an early Christmas gift by winning a legal battle between himself and a man named Raul Caiz.
According to Law360, Caiz accused the MMG boss of trademark infringement when he named his 2014 album Mastermind. Reportedly, the under-the-radar artist trademarked the Mastermind title for his own projects and wanted compensation because it was used for the LP and a tour. The company Universal Records was also named in the suit.
"When claims are made against our clients, we litigate them very aggressively," stated Leron E. Rogers, Ross' attorney.
He also said that the court threw out Caiz's trademark, so his client shouldn't have any other problems with the Mastermind title. "We are happy that the court not only ruled in Ross and Universal's favor but also took the extra step to cancel Plaintiff's trademark," said Rogers.
