Universal Music Appealing Against Eminem's Former Label
Universal Music bosses are taking a legal battle with Eminem's former publishing company to the U.S. Supreme Court after losing an appeal in a long-running dispute over royalties. Last year, FBT Productions executives claimed Universal owed the Stan hitmaker $1.47 million in damages because label heads had failed to pay the star for music downloads.
The case was heard in a California court in March 2009, when a judge dismissed FBT's argument and ruled in favor of Universal. The publishing firm's owners appealed the decision in September and won after Central District of California court Judge Silverman reversed the previous ruling, declaring Universal bosses will have to pay FBT a substantial amount in compensation.
But Universal executives are refusing to let the matter lie and they have appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider the case again, reports CMU Daily. Eminem is not directly involved in the legal battle.
