Beastie Boys Sue GoldieBlox For Acting With "Oppression, Fraud, And Malice": Gothamist
The lawsuit (below) alleges that GoldieBlox "has acted intentionally and despicably with oppression, fraud, and malice toward the Beastie Boys" and that the "Girls" ad "directly coincided with and directly resulted in a massive increase in the sales of GoldieBlox products." Products which, by some accounts, are pretty crappy.
The lawsuit argues that the "Beastie Boys and the group's members have suffered injury to their business, goodwill, and property, in an amount to be determined at trial, and are entitled to recover from GoldieBlox the gains, profits, and advantages that GoldieBlox has obtained as a result of the wrongful conduct alleged herein." In other words, **** you, my man.
