Beastie Boys Win Legal Fees Over Monster Energy Case, plus $1.7 million jury verdict

Beastie Boys Win Legal Fees Over Monster Energy Case
Monster Energy owes the band legal fees in addition to $1.7 million jury verdict


Monster Energy must pay the surviving members of the iconic rap group the Beastie Boys $668,000 in legal fees in addition to $1.7 million following a copyright violation trial, according to Business Insider.

After reviewing the band’s legal bills, U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer wrote that the "Beastie Boys opted to pay for, and received, the 'Cadillac Escalade,' not the 'Honda Civic'" of legal representation. In turn, this will award the band $532,000 above its reasonable costs.

The Beastie Boys first sued Monster Energy in August 2012 for using their name, images, and five songs in in a video without permission. Adam Yauch had passed away in May of that same year.

Yauch, who died of cancer, requested in his will that no one be allowed to use his music or image in advertising. The Beastie Boys won their verdict from a federal jury last June.

The Donald's campaign mgr: Neil is "calling him out" because "he's the only guy that's going to win"

"If an artist does not want his or her music to be associated with the campaign, he or she may be able to legal action even if the campaign has the appropriate copyright licenses," ASCAP says. "While the campaign would be in compliance with copyright law, it could potentially be in violation of other laws, including "Right of Publicity" and "False Endorsement."

This isn't the first time Trump and Young have crossed paths on the political music spectrum. In 2006, Trump attended a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young show during the group's Freedom of Speech tour. At one point, Trump and author Salman Rushdie stood up and sung along to the 2006 song "Let's Impeach the President," written and produced by Young.

"He's got something very special," Trump told Rolling Stone in 2008. "I've listened to his music for years. His voice is perfect and haunting. I've met him on occasions and he's a terrific guy."

For Lewandowski, the controversy appears to be personal against Trump, though it hasn't diminished the campaign staff's confidence. "I'd be willing to wager that the Trump campaign is the only one you're calling out," he says. "I don't understand that other than the fact that he's the only guy that's going to win the Republican nomination.


Kerouac, you fucker, you were RIGHT.

TWO things made the ass-busting effort it took for me to finish my degree at San Jose State at night while working a full time job worth it. First one was a class called "The Transcendentalists," which exposed me to the work of Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman. Second was reading "On The Road," specifically the passage below, which ultimately became my mission statement for life:

Sesame Street "One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other" game: Sting, Cher, Bono, Slash, Jeb


The more Jebby opens his yap, the more it becomes clear he's just an effing useless load.

Mr. Bush offered brief and sometimes tart descriptions about some of his Republican rivals in the presidential race.

“Real Texan,” he said of Gov. Rick Perry.

“Fighter,” he said of Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

“Rich guy,” he said of Mr. Trump.


"Ghetto Burger" served on a Sub "Role"...balancing financial needs with political correctness

I need an inflow of cash before the end of the month or my life is going to look like the USS Cole after Al Qaeda drove that boatload of explosives through the middle of it.

There is a place on the edge of town that could use some help with their Facebook page. Here's one of their food pics:

A customer had to ASK "So what might this be?" (It's a grilled chicken breast sandwich).

But THIS is the part that troubles me:

Which bothers you more, the racism or the illiteracy?

So on one side of the scale is the fact that I need money. Many of the people in dire need of marketing help in my town say "I don't need any help with my marketing," so every sales call is a long shot. And in this town, a "Ghetto Burger" isn't going to raise any eyebrows. The issue is can I sit on my little moral high horse knowing I have a client who sells "Ghetto Burgers?"

I'm going into the city tomorrow. Lord willing, I will solicit enough business to get me through the immediate financial emergency and then go prospecting on more fertile ground.

BREAKING: If elected, Jeb Bush will form a $48 billion task force to determine "What's a yoot"

CNN reports that Jeb Bush was visibly moved by an email he received from Alabama Judge Chamberlain Haller, asking him to explain what a "yoot" is. Bush, who recently announced that he is adding his name to the list of contenders for the 2016 GOP Presidential candidacy, told CNN reporters that this question will take immediate priority in his administration, should he be elected to the highest office in the land. Former "Bushies" Condoleezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Ari Fleischer and Karen Hughes have been approached to be on the executive board of the task force, which is estimated to cost $48 billion over the course of two months. When asked how such an extreme amount of money was going to be spent, Bush replied "You'll have to ask my board of directors."

"Conservatives" are working themselves into a lather over this new "Gipper was packing heat" meme

After the 1981 assassination attempt on his life, former President Ronald Reagan reportedly began carrying a gun almost everywhere he went, bestselling thriller author Brad Meltzer told MyFoxNY Monday.

Meltzer, who discovered the reported gun's existence for himself after speaking with a Secret Service employee at the agency’s museum, called it an “incredible revelation.”

Reagan reportedly carried the gun in his briefcase and would even take it on Air Force One, Meltzer said.

“I trust these (Secret Service) people around me, but if someone comes at me again, I want to be prepared,” Reagan reportedly said in explaining the action, according to Meltzer.

FORGOT the name of a city I visited. All I remember is the grass was green & the girls were pretty.

I HATE when I draw a blank like that. I think it started with a "P."
