Beats Sued By Monster Over Headphone Designs

Monster, the consumer electronics firm which co-designed the original Beats By Dr. Dre headphones, has sued Beats Electronics, saying that Beats stole the technology behind its immensely popular headphones from the company. Monster claims it was defrauded of its share of the $3 billion that was paid for Beats by Apple last year. Monster is now seeking punitive damages in lawsuit, which was filed in the San Mateo County Superior Court.
