Beastie Boys Counterclaim Against GoldieBlox, Lawsuit Continues
So, is this lawsuit just a logistical error. I don’t think so. I’ve mentioned smart lawyering before, and this makes me think it was a tactical move by the Beastie Boys in order to put GoldieBlox on the defensive. I’m guessing the Beastie Boys got a bit tired of GoldieBlox’s “holier-than-thou” mentality and they want to make sure no one else uses their copyrighted work for commercial purposes, regardless of the product and its content. Plus, it doesn’t help that GoldieBlox got cute by trying to cloak the commercial use of a copyrighted song to sell a product under parody.
Question is, who’s gonna blink first?
