(Radio.com) With bands continually looking for ways to augment income in face of decreasing across-the-board record sales, brazen advertisers have allowed the Black Keys to turn commercial lawsuits into a lucrative revenue stream.

As reported by the Hollywood Reporter, the Black Keys recently filed suit against the two aforementioned entities for a pair of commercials (including one for L'Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles in Louisiana) that utilized music which sounds "substantially similar" to the band's song, "Howlin' For You."
