Beastie Boys Sued for Trying to Thwart Free Speech

Here’s the Complaint  filed by GoldieBlox, Inc.

Complaint GoldieBlox v Beastie Boys

Update: GoldieBlox has dropped the lawsuit.  They had a fairly strong Fair Use argument since their song was an obvious parody of the Beastie Boys song, and in fact is more of a critique than most parodies that are protected by the First Amendment.  We’ll never know.
