Kanye West is refusing to drop his legal battle against a Melbourne burger chain over claims the restaurant and its meal names were taken from his album and songs without his permission.

The artist launched Federal Court action against College Dropout Burgers on Upper Heidelberg Rd, in Ivanhoe, in October.

In the 43-page document, West's lawyers demanded College Dropout owner Mark Elkhouri 'withdraw his Australian trademark application for College Dropout Burgers, destroy any material that references Ye or his branding, and pay their costs'.

West originally sent a cease and desist to the burger restaurant in June after learning of the similarities. 

West took issue with the name of the restaurant as it is the same one used on his first album and complained about the titles of several menu items.

Mr Elkhouri has always insisted his business made it clear the restaurant was not associated with the artist.
