Recently while I was posting a couple of entertainment lawsuit tidbits, I kept thinking I’d heard something about the Beastie Boys suing.
I did. But I was wrong; the Beastie Boys are being sued. Here’s the story: Beastie Boys Fight Online Video Parody of ‘Girls’ – NYTimes.com.
I leave it to you to figure out why, if a Beastie Boys’ song is being used against the BB’s wishes to advertise toys, it’s the toy company that’s suing the BB’s instead of the other way around.
UPDATE 3/18/14 … and it’s been resolved: Beastie Boys and Toy Company Settle Lawsuit Over Ad’s Use of ‘Girls’ – NYTimes.com.
