Update: Beastie Boys’ Copyright Showdown

Amidst the imminent copyright battle with the Beastie Boys over use of their song ‘Girls’ with alternative lyrics, Goldieblox has removed the track from the viral ad altogether. In an open letter to the band, the company offered to withdraw their lawsuit if the Beastie Boys stipulate Goldieblox is “no longer under threat” 

Do you think Goldiebox simply second guessed the strength of their fair use claim?
