Eminem lawsuit continues
A federal judge ruled that over use of his "Lose Yourself" song in an Apple iTunes tv ad can go forward, after a preliminary hearing was held on Monday, according to the Detroit Free Press: "On Monday, U.S. District Judge U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled that Eminem's publishing company's suit can proceed against several companies, including MTV parent company Viacom and advertising agency TBWA/Chiat/Day. Taylor threw out two state law-based claims of unfair competition and unjust enrichment. The television ad appeared many times during three months beginning in July 2003 and on Apple's Web site, despite the fact that the computer company had unsuccessfully sought Eminem's permission for the campaign."
