His family has been really stingy(or protective, depending on how you look at it) with Jimi's image and his music. I remember when Vh1 did their TV movie about him, the family refused to let them use any of his songs. I also remember, though, that "Purple Haze" was in the animated film "American Pop"(btw, if you haven't seen this, you need to find it. There is some great music in it), so I guess they pick and choose their battles.
