Eminem’s Music Publishers Suing Apple

Eminem’s music publishers, Eight Mile Style LLC, are going after Apple Inc., claiming they “never authorized the use of 93 songs in a downloadable format on Apple’s popular iTunes service.” The two companies are expected to being a non-jury trial proceeding today but it’s unlikely that the rapper will appear. It’s unknown how much money is actually at stake but Eminem’s people are claiming that they’ve lost upwards of $2.5 million from iTunes download sales. Apple is denying the whole thing saying that they have a legal and viable contract with Aftermath Records, which controls the recordings in question. Eminem’s music publishers also filed a lawsuit against the label saying that they had no right to provide the songs.

    Last Original Sugababe Leaves

    After a lot of cat fights within the band, Keisha Buchanan is no longer a member of Sugababes and has decided to pursue a solo career. The announcement was made on their official website which said “The current line-up of the Sugababes has disbanded. Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah will continue as the Sugababes and will be joined by new member Jade Ewen. They release their album ‘Sweet 7’ on November 23rd through Island Records. Keisha Buchanan will continue to record for Island Records as a solo artist.” Keisha was the last of the original line up to have left the band. I wonder what went down with the other girls to have her kicked out. It’s obvious that the problem wasn’t with the label as she’s still with them as a solo artist.
