If your Friday to-do-list includes ‘find music for clients advert’ then you need to cross the BEASTIE BOYS off that list is the ADAM YAUCH’s will prohibits use of his music in commercials.
The last will and testament belonging to founding member, the MCA, was filed Tuesday in Manhattan Surrogate Court and reportedly contains a clause that bars advertisers from using his music, likeness, or any art he’s created in connection with hawking products.
“Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in no event may my image or name or any music or any artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes,” reads a copy of the will. The phrase “or any music or any artistic property created by me” was reportedly added in handwriting.
I’m gonna update my will to include that after I’m gone, no-one can place adverts on my blog, keep it advert-free as it’s always been.
So there you go.
