American music group, “The Beastie Boys” have sued Monster Energy Drink for copyright infringement. Founding member Adam Horovitz appeared in a New York court on Tuesday as the case filed nearly two years ago got underway. The Beastie Boys say that Monster Energy used their songs and image to promote their product without permission. In 2012, band member Adam Yauch died and it was reported his Will banded the use of The Beastie Boys music in advertisements. The group is seeking $150,000 in damages for each infringement.
