Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch, who died from cancer in May, has prohibited the use of his music, image or any other artistic creation in advertising following his death via his will, reports Rolling Stone.

The document states: “Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in no event may my image or name or any music or any artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes”.

The will also leaves $6.4 million to Yauch’s wife Dechen and their daughter Tenzin Losel.
