Felix Salmon: GoldieBlox, fair use, and the cult of disruption:

Given the speed with which the GoldieBlox complaint appeared, indeed, it's reasonable to assume that they had it in their back pocket all along, ready to whip out the minute anybody from the Beastie Boys, or their record label, so much as inquired about what was going on. The strategy here is to maximize ill-will: don't ask permission, make no attempt to negotiate in good faith, antagonize the other party as much as possible.
