Contract Law: Fighting Threats to Artistic Integrity

While many contracts scholars were busy discussing Medellin and the CISG, the Smashing Pumpkins were busy suing their former record label Virgin Records for breach of contract. The band is apparently peeved that the label is using its name and music to market Pepsi Points (remember those, Leonard?) The band claims that the use of their likeness in the promotional campaign extends beyond Virgin's contractual rights and threatens its artistic integrity. That's right, you heard it here first, contract law is making the world safe for artistic integrity.
