EMINEMS PUBLISHERS ARE SUEING FACEBOOK

Eminem is taking legal action against Facebook for unlawfully using his music without his consent.

Eight Mile Style (Eminem’s publishing company) have formally filed a lawsuit against the social media platform’s  founder Mark Zuckerberg, after it allegedly  created a 30 second advert containing music From Eminems single ‘Under the Influence  without obtaining copyright clearance.

The advert ‘Airplane was used as part of a PR campaign  for the new Facebook Home software available on  Android phones. The advert  has since been re-released using different music.

Facebook’s legal team  have made a statement claiming that the track was originally, a “rip-off” of a Michael Jackson song that Dr Dre remixed.

The Eight Mile Style organisation are seeking damages of $150,000 per infringement.
