Eminem Suing Apple... Again

Eminem Sues AppleWith his quick descent into complete irrelevance, Eminem has taken to stirring up controversy and attention any way he can. His latest tactic -- suing Apple... again.

Last time Eminem took the company to court Apple still had 'Computers' at the end of its name. That case was over the use of the mega-hit 'Lose Yourself' in an iPod ad. Now Eminem is claiming that Apple is selling his music through its iTunes online music store without his permission.

Eminem's music, while published by Eight Mile Style LLC and Martin Affiliated LLC, is distributed through Universal. iTunes sells the rapper's albums as part of its arrangement with Universal, but Eminem claims that express permission must received via Eight Mile Style and Martin.

This is part of a larger shift in sentiment that publishers -- not the labels -- should have the final say in whether or not music is distributed online.
