Beastie Boys Member Ad-Rock Taking the Stand in Copyright Case Against Monster Energy Drink
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 05.25.2014

Consequence of Sound reports that Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock (Adam Horovitz) is taking the stand in the band's copyright infringement case against Monster Energy Drink.

Mike Diamond, Adam Horovitz and Adam Yauch's widow, Denchen Yauch, filed a suit in 2012 in New York federal court against the energy drink company because they reportedly used the band's songs without their permission. The band is claiming that "Sabotage," "So Watcha Want," "Make Some Noise," and "Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun" were used in a promo video on the Monster site for the Ruckus Festival in Canada. The festival took place a days after Yauch's passing.

Horovitz is set to appear at Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse in New York City oN May 27 to represent the band. The Beastie Boys are seeking financial damages of $150,000 for each infringement, as well as a permanent injunction. Their suit states: "The public was confused into believing that plaintiffs sponsored, endorsed and are associated with defendant Monster in promoting defendant Monster's productions and promotional events".
