Beastie Boy puts advertising ban in will…not selling out or stupid?

| More

Beastie Boy co-founder and rap pioneer Adam Yauch, aka MCA, wanted to make sure that even after death he would never be a sellout.  MCA passed away from cancer in May, leaving his fortune to his wife and daughter.  He included in his will a provision that bans  companies from using his music, image, or likeness in any advertising.

What do you think of MCA’s will?  Happy to see he’s not selling out, or do you think it’s ridiculous that he felt the need to create the provision?
