Though the company eventually pulled the misappropriated music and advertisement, the Beastie Boys are maintaining their right to sue and have filed against Goldieblox for the company's use of their music in a viral video, something which went directly against the wishes of late member Adam "MCA" Yauch.
Along with noting that the company took down the ad only after gaining attention - and arguably sales - from the video, the suit notes that the company has also stolen and used music from Queen, Daft Punk, Kaskade, Krewella, Avicii, Slam, k.flay, and Trevor Guthrie. The Beastie Boys originally asked for a more appropriate apology than the non-apology they originally posted along with a donation to a charity.
The Beastie Boys noted that the music directly translated into a "massive increase" in sales for GoldieBlox; to add insult to injury, the company put the band's name in the description of the YouTube video implying that the band somehow endorsed the product and/or the video.

More positive developments for the members of Pussy Riot who were imprisoned over a controversial protest in early 2012. Along with a recent proposed amnesty coming from a new Kremlin bill, the Russian Supreme Court has also found fault with the decision which led to the imprisonment.
The Supreme Court said the lower court had neither proven "hatred" by the women, are in the later part of two year sentences, nor taken into consideration their status as mothers of young children. The court also noted that no account was taken of "extenuating circumstances" or that neither woman had previous convictions, or that their actions were "non-violent" nor that even the victims of their actions did not want them punished so harshly.
As it stands, only a few months remain on the sentences however, so it wouldn't dramatically change their situation but would at least provide some measure of moral victory.
