Beastie Boys settle lawsuit with toy maker over ‘Girls’ parody ad


The Beastie Boys and toy maker GoldieBlox have settled a lawsuit over an ad that the company debuted late last year parodying one of the bands hit songs. As part of the settlement, GoldieBlox will no longer be able to use its parody of the Beastie Boys song Girls and will publish an apology to the band, which should appear sometime later today on its company blog. The toy maker will also make a donation based on a percentage of its revenues to a charity selected by the Beastie Boys that supports science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education for girls — the very subjects that GoldieBloxs toy lines try to promote. GoldieBlox will donate to STEM charities chosen by the Beastie Boys
