*Dr. Dre has lost a court battle to keep a real doctor in Pennsylvania from using the name “Doctor Drai.”

According to TMZ, gynecologist Draion M. Burch says he’s been going by Doctor Drai for years, using the moniker to author books, post YouTube videos and during public appearances. In 2015, he filed to trademark his name and “Doctor Drai OBGYN & Media Personality.”

Dr. Dre’s legal team got wind of the application and moved to stop it, claiming the similarity in their names would cause confusion in the marketplace.

But the trademark office sided with the gynecologist, saying that although the rapper/producer was well known, there wasn’t enough evidence that people would be confused.

The case has been dismissed.
