Wu-Tang Clan sues Brooklyn dog-walking service called Woof-Tang Clan

RZA Wu tang clan and dogs

The site also sold T-shirts with dogs inserted in iconic rap albums, such as Wu-Tang Clan member Old Dirty Bastard's solo 1995 album Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version and De La Soul's debut 1989 album 3 Feet High and Rising.

Speaking to The New York Daily News, Woof-Tang Clan owner Marty Cuatchon acknowledged RZA's legal challenge.

Rapper RZA of the group Wu-Tang Clan opposes the application of registered trademark of Woof-Tang Clan, a company that specializes in dog walking.

In court papers, Diggs said the name and logo of the Wu-Tang Clan has been "unmistakably associated" with the Staten Island hip hop group since 1993. RZA's lawsuit was filed on 15 November, stating that the Brooklyn company's name is "highly similar" to Wu-Tang's mark and "falsely suggests a connection".

Cuatchon spoke with the New York Daily News, saying he was aware of Digg's trademark suit. It did not, however, comment on the case before having the advice of a lawyer.

"I am a fan".

Cuatchon is not the first to try and riff off Wu-Tang's fame.
