New Zealand political party infringed Eminem copyright, must pay $412k

26 12 2017
A company that owns some¬†of rapper Eminem’s early work has won a copyright case against an unusual defendant: a New Zealand political party.

New Zealand’s National Party has been ordered to pay NZ$600,000, plus interest, for using music from Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself” in a 2014¬†election ad. That’s around US$412,000 that must be paid to the plaintiff in the case, Eight Mile Style, a music publisher that owns some of Eminem’s early catalog.
