The foo fighters are suing Marvel Comics for using one or two of their Songs in a promo for the new X-men cartoon.
I for one think it is ridiculous. How can they claim damages when no one even remembers who the foo fighters are?
Heck, I would think they should be happy with the free publicity and exposure. Although that does bring me back to who remembers them and would even know those were their songs.
Apparently they have a new album coming out. Maybe that is the reason for the lawsuit against Marvel in the first place. Perhaps they are suing The comic book giant to drum up publicity for the band and the new CD.
I can’t believe a big production company like Marvel wouldn’t have gotten the proper permissions. Most likely they had several trailers prepared and accidentally sent the wrong one out to the TV stations.
I for one will not be buying any foo fighters music but I will be watching the Marvel Wolverine and the X-men cartoon. So I guess that Marvel wins this battle [at least in my case they do].
Not knowing the Foo Fighters music I would have to assume this video of the Marvel trailer for Wolverine and the X-Men has the copyright infringing music in it.
