Spotify sued over 'billions of Eminem streams'

Eminem's publisher, Eight Mile Style, is suing Spotify.

It claims the music-streaming service failed to correctly copyright the rapper's work.

Eminem has never been properly paid for songs "streamed on Spotify billions of times", court papers say.

And Spotify, which has yet to respond publicly, put the song Lose Yourself into a category for unknown authors, without copyright protection, which Eight Mile Style calls "absurd".

Lose Yourself, recorded and produced by Eminem and his long-time collaborators Jeff Bass and Luis Resto, was the first hip-hop song to win an Academy Award.
