Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, who died from cancer this past May at age 47, made sure his artistic dignity would be be maintained after his death. In his will, which was filed Tuesday in Manhattan, the rapper stipulated that his music and “artistic property” cannot be used for advertising purposes.
DNAInfo.com reports that the late Adam Yauch's Last Will and Testament does prohibit usage of his and the Beastie Boys' songs in adverts.
Yauch - known as MCA - wanted to make sure that after his death the Beastie Boys' trademark sound would never be exploited in commercials.
DNAInfo reports that his will was filed on Tuesday in a Manhattan Surrogate Court, and it stipulates that his wife, Dechen Yauch, has the right to sell and/or manage his art.
