Audioslave File Suit Against Miller Brewing

MTV News reports that have filed an intellectual-property lawsuit against Miller Brewing Company, claiming the company failed to consult the band about using the name in an ad celebrating 50 years of rock and roll, which ran in the September 30 issue of Rolling Stone. “ does not permit its name, image or identity to be used in commercial advertising, other than advertising for [the band’s] record albums, concert tours and related matters,” the suit reads. “In particular, does not endorse commercial products, including alcoholic beverages, and does not agree to appear in advertisements for alcoholic beverages … [since] members of [the group] have had issues with alcohol and the band is completely opposed to the use of its name to advertise and promote alcoholic beverage companies and products.”
