Fall Out Boy are being sued by a puppet company for overusing Llama puppets that were created for one of the band’s music videos.
According to Furry Puppet Studio Inc., the company who created the llama puppets, Fall Out Boy was licensed to use the puppets in the “Young And Menace” music video “but not beyond” that project.
The complaint says that the llamas have taken on “a life of their own.” Fall Out Boy have used the puppets as branding for merchandise, included the puppets onstage at concerts and television appearances and have also used the puppets to promote their Llamania EP released last February.
“None of this was within the scope of the original limited implied license, and none of it was foreseeable to Plaintiff,” the complaint reads.
The company is suing the band for copyright infringement, breach of contract, unjust enrichment and other counts.
