Lawsuit withdrawn over Girls song

A US toy company has removed its parody of a popular Beastie Boys song from a promotional video that went viral.

GoldieBlox founder Debbie Sterling posted an open letter to the band's surviving members on Wednesday saying the company also plans to withdraw a lawsuit it filed for the right to spoof the song Girls.

The company filed the lawsuit last week, saying the Beastie Boys threatened their own legal action for copyright infringement.

Sterling says she did not know the Beastie Boys have a blanket ban on using their songs in advertisements.

GoldieBlox makes engineering toys for girls and tweaked the lyrics of Girls to talk about spaceships and software.

The video had spread across the Internet in recent weeks, with more than eight million views on YouTube.
