Adam Yauch's will blocks use of Beastie Boys in ads
Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch has blocked the use of the trap group's music for advertising purposes after his death, according to his will.
Yauch (a.k.a. MCA), who died in May at age 47, included a handwritten stipulation in the document which was filed in Manhattan Surrogate court on Tuesday (August 7) and obtained by Rolling Stone.
"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," the will states. The phrase "or any music or any artistic property created by me" was added in handwriting.
Yauch left his US $6.4 million estate to his wife Dechen and their daughter, Tenzin Losel.
