Eminem Wins Case vs New Zealand Political Party
« on: October 25, 2017, 04:38:59 PM »
Reuters - A New Zealand political party has been ordered to pay more than $400,000 to U.S. rapper Eminem for using music similar to his 2002 hit "Lose Yourself" in a television commercial to help win a national election.

The track, played during the National Party's successful 2014 election campaign and titled "Eminem Esque", was found by a New Zealand court to have "substantially copied" Lose Yourself.

The National Party used the song 186 times during the campaign before taking the ad off the air, the court said.

"This decision is a warning to sound-alike music producers and their clients everywhere," Adam Simpson, director of Simpsons Solicitors, who acted for Eminem’s music company, Eight Mile Style, said in a statement.
