It was over a parody...
Beastie Boys have settled their lawsuit with toy company GoldieBlox. As you may recall, the band filed suit against the company after their song "Girls" was parodied without their permission. GoldieBlox then countersued, noting that they have parodied several acts for commercial purposes.
Now, THR reports that the two sides have come to an agreement and both lawsuits will be dismissed. Terms of the suit were not disclosed.
