Eminem May Be Headed to Trial in Apple Lawsuit

Eminem’s music publisher, Eight Mile Style LLC, along with Martin Affiliated LLC have filed a lawsuit in federal court against Apple Inc. over the sale of more than 90 of Em’s songs that are being offered for purchase on iTunes.

According to Reuters, both publishing companies claim that Apple has been selling these songs without proper permission or payment. The plaintiffs are also suing Aftermath Records, which controls Eminem’s recordings, for unlawfully entering into agreements with Apple for the sale of these digital downloads.

Apple claims that authorization had been granted and that Eminem’s publisher has received substantial royalties for everything.

A conference that may determine whether or not a trial will commence was scheduled for today (September 23). If the issue is not resolved in the conference a trial is expected to begin Thursday.
