The late, great Adam Yauch — aka MCA of the Beastie Boys — preserved his legacy with a simple provision in his will. The will, which was filed Tuesday in the Manhattan Surrogate Court, prohibits the use of his image, music, or art in advertisements.

The will also placed Yauch’s $6.4 million fortune in a trust for his wife, Dechen, and their 13 year-old daughter. Dechen was also given the right to sell and manage his art.

Yauch passed away on May 4th at the age of 47 from salivary cancer.
