The Black Keys Accuse Two More Companies of Ripping Off Their Music

the black keys The Black Keys Accuse Two More Companies of Ripping Off Their MusicRemember when the Black Keys sued Home Depot and Pizza Hut for stealing their music for some commercials? Well, while that whole thing was settled last year, the blues duo has their sights set on some new litigation. They have sued a casino company (Pinnacle Entertainment) and advertising agency (Manhattan Production Music) for jacking their song “Howlin’ for You”.

Unfortunately, the two advertisements in question have been taken down from YouTube so we can’t do a comparison for y’all. But, the Black Keys state that one commercial has “substantially similar” music to “Howlin’ for You” while the other has “infringing music.” The Hollywood Reporter states that a tweet from Pinnacle went out with the statement, “We bought a licensed musical interpretation of the song,” but said tweet no longer exists. [via]
