Check Your Head (and Wallet): New Beasties Suit for Legal Fees

In the Beastie Boys' continuing saga against Monster, the group has filed another suit on the heals of its 2014 victory for copyright infringement. In the complaint filed over the weekend the group asks the same court to award attorneys' fees and costs, which ended up being substantially more than the damages award received in the June copyright infringement verdict.

Assuming that the copyright registrations for the songs infringed were filed correctly, the Beasties would be entitled to ask the court for "reasonable" attorneys' fees and "full" costs under 17 U.S.C. section 505.
