Eminem publisher, Apple reach settlement

A lawsuit between Apple and Eight Mile Style LLC and Martin Affiliated LLC, music publisher and copyright manager for rap artist Eminem, has been settled after just five days of trials, the Associated Press reports. The suit, filed in July 2007 in U.S. District Court in Detroit, claimed Apple violated copyrights by allowing unauthorized sales of Eminem’s music. Although Aftermath Records has rights to the recordings, Eight Mile Style claimed that those rights did not allow the label to make a deal with Apple without its approval. A settlement was reached Thursday night, according to an Eight Mile Style attorney; no further details have been disclosed.
