  • Eminem and Company sues AppleŠ

    DETROIT, Michigan -- Eminem's music publisher is suing Apple Computer, claiming the company used one of the hip-hop superstar's songs in a television advertisement without permission.

    Eight Mile Style filed the copyright infringement suit late last week against Apple, Viacom, its MTV subsidiary and the TBWA/Chiat/Day advertising agency.

    At issue is an ad for Apple's iTunes pay-per-download music software, in which a 10-year-old sings Eminem's "Lose Yourself." The suit claims the commercial aired on MTV beginning in July 2003 and ran numerous times for at least three months. It also appeared on Apple's website.

    "Eminem has never nationally endorsed any commercial products and ... even if he were interested in endorsing a product, any endorsement deal would require a significant amount of money, possibly in excess of $10 million," according to the 15-page lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

    The suit claims that Apple CEO Steve Jobs personally called Joel Martin, manager of Eight Mile Style, and asked Martin and Eminem to "rethink their position" about using the Grammy-winning song.

    Eminem responded by ending discussions with Apple, according to the suit.

    Eminem, 31, whose legal name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, grew up in Detroit and several of its blue-collar suburbs. He has sold more than 33 million records, according to industry estimates
