Men At Work sued by girls in uniform

... sort of. So some people are suing Men At Work because the band stole the riff from an older song.

Incidentally, the riff was part of a song for the Girl Guides.

So now the injured parties (Larrikin Music) wants royalties from the song.

Am I the only one thinking this violates the ideals and whatchacallits of the Girl Guide movement? Wasn't the movement a sort of a hippy 'we love the world' crap movement in the first place?

Or was that just tactics to avoid bears? I don't know, I steered clear of them in my school. The whole campfire singing, running away from bears nonsense looked less fun than a lazy weekend playing Wolfenstein 3D.
