Eminem Sues Apple For Copyright Infringement

Posted By on July 31, 2007

Eight Mile Style, Eminem's music publisher, has filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Apple Inc. for copyright infringement.

In the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Detroit yesterday (July 30), Eight Mile Style charged Apple with infringing its copyrights by permitting unauthorized downloads of Eminem songs.

"Eight Mile and Martin have demanded that Apple cease and desist its reproduction and distribution and Apple has refused," the complaint accuses.

Neither Apple reps nor attorneys for Eight Mile, could be reached for comment.

Back in 2004, Eight Mile first filed a suit against Apple, after the company failed to secure Eminem's permission to use "Lose Yourself." Apple used the song in an ad campaign, that began running in July 2003 all over the internet and TV. The ad, which also aired on MTV, featured a 10-year-old rhyming Slim's hit while promoting Apple's iPod's music player. The case was settled out of court.
