The New York rock band Moldy Peaches recently discovered that their CDs had become big hits in Chile because one of their songs, "Jorge Regula," was featured in an ad for Pepsodent toothpaste in that country. Band co-founder Adam Green said that the song was used without authorization -- or payment. He told Britain's New Musical Express, "Recently we've had music in adverts and people haven't even asked. We had to hunt down lawyers in South America to sue toothpaste companies that have used songs of mine."
