Eminem to battle Apple over copyright

“A federal judge says rapper Eminem’s copyright infringement claims over use of his song “Lose Yourself” in a commercial for Apple Computer can go forward.

Apple featured a 10-year-old boy singing the Oscar-winning theme song to the rapper’s movie “8 Mile” in an ad on MTV for the computer company’s iPod music player and iTunes music service.

On Monday, US District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled that the suit brought by Eminem’s publishing company can proceed against several companies, including MTV parent company Viacom and advertising agency TBWA/Chiat/Day.”
