Michael Jackson Buys a Portion of Eminem’s Catalog

eminem2.jpgPop superstar Michael Jackson now owns the rights to portions of Eminem’s catalog as a result of his Sony/ATV Music Publishing company’s recent purchase of Famous Music LLC from Viacom. Through the deal, Jackson now controls the publishing rights to songs such as “Without Me” and “The Real Slim Shady” according to Reuters. Viacom announced the deal, which is estimated to be worth some $370 million, on Wednesday (May 30). Jackson and Sony/ATV now also own the rights to scores of hit songs from a number of artists including Shakira, and movie soundtracks such as The Godfather and Mission: Impossible. In 2004, Em famously enraged the pop legend when he parodied him in the video for his single “Just Lose It.”
