Battle for Eminem's digital royalties goes to court

Is Eminem suing his label’s corporate parent, Universal Music Group, for downloading royalties? Not true, says a rep for Slim Shady: "Eminem is not a party to this lawsuit." The real plaintiff is F.B.T. Productions, a music publishing company affiliated with the rapper early in his career, which is taking Universal to court today in a bid to score millions in profits from digital download revenues, including iTunes and ringtones. But while Marshall Mathers is not expected to face the judge, The Wrap is reporting that Interscope Records chief Jimmy Iovine is on the witness list, along with Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who will testify by video.

    Poor Steve Jobs – can’t we let the guy worry about his health instead of this stuff?
