Monster claims Beats hid its role in headphone production, files suit
Though it seems like the myriad of lawsuits involving Apple have died down a bit, it looks like the Apple-owned Beats is about to be embroiled in another. Tech company Monster has decided to file a suit over accusations that Beats co-founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine failed to properly acknowledge Monster's role in designing the technology behind Beats headphones. From USA Today (opens in new tab):
It will be interesting to see if this suit gains any traction, as Monster played a large role in designing the original Beats headphones, and even held a manufacturing and distribution deal with the company.
