Exclusive: Russell Simmons’ Rush Card Sues Over Misleading Ads



Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons’ UniRush has filed a lawsuit against a company that he claims has been using the “Rush Card” name to leverage search results.

Lawyers for Simmons’s Rush Card filed a lawsuit against AccountNow in United States Federal Court, Southern Division.

According to the complaint, AccountNow is taking advantage of the word “Rush” and sending customers to its own website, in some cases trumping the real “Rush Card” display ads on various Internet sites.

Lawyers for Simmons’s Rush Card said that they sent a cease and desist notice to AccountNow in November of 2011, but the legal warning was ignored.

Lawyers for Simmons’ Rush Card are concerned that consumers are being confused by the similar advertising, which could damage Simmons’ brand.

Russell Simmons launched the Rush Card in 2004.

In 2008, Russell Simmons sued another fraudster for attempting to operate the website rushmecredit.com.

UniRush is suing for unfair competition, trademark infringement and seeks an undetermined amount of punitive damages.

Exclusive: Legal War Breaks Out Over Yung Joc



An Atlanta music company has filed a lawsuit against Yung Joc and Block Enterprises, claiming legal control over the rapper’s career.

Master Mind Music Inc. filed a lawsuit against Yung Joc and Block Enterprises in United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia on January 17.

The lawsuit claims that Yung Joc signed an artist development and exclusive recording agreement with Master Mind Music in February of 2005.

Under the deal that Yung Joc signed, each record that was created by the rapper during the duration of the deal, was to be the property of Master Mind Music.

Master Mind Music also reserved the exclusive right to copyright the recordings of Yung Joc in its own name.

In addition to administrative rights, the lawsuit claims that Master Mind Music was entitled to co-ownership of all of Yung Joc recordings, in addition to a 50% share of Yung Joc’s publishing during the term of the agreement.

The lawsuit claims that Master Mind Music helped with the recording and eventual release of Yung Joc’s debut album Hustlenomics, which contained the rapper’s biggest single “It’s Goin Down.”

Around October of 2005, Master Mind Music linked with Block Enterprises, in order to place Yung Joc on the Bad Boy/Atlantic Records record label.

The lawsuit claims that Block Enterprises presented Yung Joc as its sole artist, effectively cutting Master Mind Music out of the deal.

The lawsuit also claims the Block Enterprises illegally granted copyright interest in Yung Joc’s recordings to Bad Boy.

“Block knew or should have known that he did not have the rights to the artists’ exclusive recording services which he purportedly granted to Bad Boy/Atlantic,” the complaint reads. “Further, Block never subsequently acquired those rights from Master Mind.”

According to Master Mind Music’s lawsuit, Yung Joc debut album for Bad Boy, New Jock City, sold over 1 million copies.

Master Mind Music claim that Block Enterprises didn’t have the authority to distribute Yung Joc’s master recordings.

Master Mind Music is suing for copyright infringement, breach of contract, torturous interference with contractual relations, fraudulent misrepresentation, and fraud.

Has Jay-Z Given Up on Rocawear?




Jay-Z is undoubtedly a successful business man, but all of his savviness couldn't save his Rocawear brand from these harsh economic times.

Details are just emerging about the company letting go of half the staff from the men's and boys apparel division on January 6th. 28 of the 56 workers were let go due to "economic reasons," which was revealed in documents filed at the New York Department of Labor.

Inside sources at the company also revealed that Jay-Z, who was formerly a big presence in the office, has now stopped coming in so often. The source added, "it's kind of like he's given up on the brand."

NYPD Developing Infrared Body Scanner To Spot Weapons On People Walking On The Street (VIDEO)




The NYPD is working with the U.S. Department of Defense to develop technology that can detect concealed firearms at a distance.

The device will be able to read a form of natural energy emitted by people called terahertz, and if something is obstructing that energy, the device will highlight that object on a person's body.

"This technology has shown a great deal of promise as a way of detecting weapons without a physical search," said police spokesman Paul Browne in a statement.

Some civil libertarians said there may be a potential upside to this new technology.

"If we take the police department at their word, that stop-and-frisks are necessary to get guns off the street, then this technology — if it were to work, if it were to be implemented — should reduce the stop-and-frisk numbers dramatically," said Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union.

But Lieberman said the technology would raise other potential civil liberties problems.

'It does implicate the right of privacy," Lieberman said. "The ability to walk down the street free from a virtual police pat-down is a matter of concern."

The police have repeatedly defended their stop-and-frisk practice as an important crime-fighting tool that gets guns off the street.

Browne said the department employs other strategies to reduce the number of illegal guns in circulation, including undercover investigations, gun buy-back programs with the public and partnering with clergy leaders to deter gun violence in minority communities.

But Browne said this technology would allow police to tackle gun violence more aggressively.

The device would be placed in a vehicle and could scan an area for weapons. The police said the technology is currently being tested but so far is only detecting weapons from four feet away. They hope to increase the distance to about 80 feet.

Browne said the department will roll out the new technology as soon as it meets their requirements. Source

Do you think this technology is a good tool in the fight against violence or does it go too far?? Check out the video and share your thoughts below!!
