Black Keys Settle Suits Over Use Of Music In Commercials

LOS ANGELES (November 27, 2012)--The Black Keys have told a federal judge the band has settled copyright infringement lawsuits against Pizza Hut and The Home Depot claiming misuse of their music in commercials.

Alleging that the song "Lonely Boy" was improperly used to sell power tools, and "Gold on the Ceiling" to sell pizza, the Grammy-winning band sued in June and both companies denied copying the songs.

Attorneys for the band informed a federal judge in Los Angeles of the Pizza Hut settlement on Monday.

The settlement agreement with The Home Depot was reached earlier this month.

No details of the settlements were included in court filings.

Representatives of the companies and the band did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
