The Black Key settled their copyright dispute with Pizza Hut and The Home Depot. The band claimed that the stores used their songs in commercials without their consent. They say “Lonely Boy” was used to push power tools while “Gold on the Ceiling” was used to hawk pizza. Both stores denied copying the songs for the commercials. So who came out on top? It’s hard telling. No details about the settlements were included in the Los Angeles court filings. I wonder if they got some free power tools and pizza in the deal!?!
