The Beastie Boys vs. GoldieBlox advert argument has just taken an interesting turn, with the former stating that it was GoldieBlox filing the lawsuit.

Basically GoldieBlox made a parody song based on 'Girls' without getting the hip-hop legends' consent.

"We strongly support empowering young girls, breaking down gender stereotypes and igniting a passion for technology and engineering," says the band, adding that they were "impressed by the creativity and the message" but that the video is "an advertisement that is designed to sell a product, and long ago, we made a conscious decision not to permit our music and/or name to be used in product ads." Adam 'MCA' Yauch's will clearly states that "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."

Their statement to GoldieBlox also references the lawsuit filed against GoldieBlox last Friday by saying "when we tried to simply ask how and why our song 'Girls' had been used in your ad without our permission, YOU sued US."
