News Dave Grohl vs. Wolverine

The Foo Fighters have announced that they are suing Marvel Comics for copyright infringement based on a trailer for a new Wolverine cartoon that uses “substantial excerpts” of the songs “Best of You” and “Free Me.” It’s clear that the songs appear in the trailer, so there’s not much of an argument that Marvel can put up. Still, I can’t help wishing that for some reason Grohl will lose, or at least that he would have asked them to remove the music without bringing legal action. This is a clash between two of my childhood idols - the Foo Fighters and the X-Men. Although I don’t read comics like I used to, I would much rather pick up the new X-Men book than listen to the new Foo Fighters album. I long for the time when using someone’s music could be construed as a compliment. Now it warrants a lawsuit. Obviously Grohl was never a comic book fan. Go get your money, Scrooge.
