Eminem Wins Copyright Lawsuit In New Zealand
(New Zealand) — Rapper Eminem is 600-thousand-dollars richer after winning a copyright lawsuit in New Zealand. Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, filed suit against New Zealand’s then-governing party back in 2014. The party released an ad campaign using a version of the hit song “Lose Yourself.” The nation’s high court ruled this week that the song was too similar to Eminem’s original song and therefore breached the copyright. In 2004, Mathers also sued Apple for using a song in one of its television commercials without his permission.
