According to a recent article on Hollywood Reporter, Dr. Dre's Beats Electronics is suing Yamaha in California federal court, alleging violations of patents with Yamaha's Pro 300, Pro 400 and Pro 500 lines of headphones.
Beats seeks to protect rights on a number of its products -- including the Beats Studio and Beats Solo headphones -- and that its proprietary trade dress extends to "the overall appearance of the shape and design of the headphone, including the size, proportion and curvature of the headband, yoke and earcups."
Here's an image from the article comparing both Beats and Yamaha headphones, side by side.
