It's tricky, tricky, tricky, but the law is pretty clear, if it's trademarked. 

Reuters reports Run-DMC founder Darryl "DMC" McDaniels filed a lawsuit Thursday in New York seeking at least $50 million from Amazon, Walmart, and a number of other retailers. The lawsuit accuses the retailers of infringing on the Run-DMC trademark and "trading on the goodwill" of the hip-hop legends by "advertising, manufacturing, selling, and distributing multiple products" that imply they were officially endorsed by Run-DMC. 

This is really everything from sunglasses to t-shirts. I guess it's not that tricky after all?
