Eminem's publisher Eight Mile Style can move forward with a lawsuit against Spotify, claiming they didn't have permission to stream 250 songs.
Eminems publisher Eight Mile Style has been deeply entrenched in a lawsuit with Spotifyfor some time now and reportedly scored a legal victory on April 23. According to The Hollywood Reporter,a federal judge ruled that Eight Mile Style can move forward with their suit against Spotify claiming the streaming giant didnt have permission to stream 250 songs from Ems decorated discography, including 8 Mile soundtrack smash Lose Yourself. The lawsuit also targets the Harry Fox Agency, which was hired directly by Spotify to secure the music licenses. The judge refused to dismiss a claim that the Harry Fox Agency committed copyright infringement by helping Spotify distribute Eminems music without a proper license. Eight Mile Styles court action is a direct attack on the Trump administrations landmark passing of the Music Modernization Act of 2018. They claim the licenses were never legit, royalties werent properly paid and other notices were backlogged.
