Eminem’s publisher sues Spotify for copyright infringement over ‘Lose Yourself’ and other tracks
Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic for Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival Eminem’s music publisher, Eight Mile Style, has filed a lawsuit against Spotify, alleging copyright infringement. The suit claims the steaming platform didn’t get proper licenses for the rapper’s music and wants Spotify to compensate the publisher for billions of streams. There are two prongs to the suit, which was first reported today by The Hollywood Reporter. Spotify is accused of willfully ignoring Eight Mile Style’s ownership of Eminem’s catalogue when deciding how to pay out streaming revenue for his playback metrics. Spotify also allegedly violated sections of the Music Modernization Act (MMA), which passed last October and is designed to help streamline the process by which artists, songwriters, producers, and rights holders get paid for online music streams. According to the complaint, one of the central disputes is over how Spotify treated massive hits like Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.” Eight Mile Style claims the streaming service labelled the song and others as “Copyright Control,” or a song with unknown rights holders. The complaint similarly alleges that Spotify did not go through the proper process to obtain a license for “Lose Yourself” and other songs, or determine who did own the licenses. “Lose Yourself” was famously written for a film starring Eminem — a film of the same name as the publisher itself! — that won an Oscar in the Best Original Song Category. Eminem’s publisher claims Spotify knowingly streamed the rapper’s music without a license Instead, Spotify kept Eminem’s music on the platform, where the artist has amassed more than 32 million monthly listeners. Some of his songs have been streamed hundreds of millions times. Eight Mile Style is accusing Spotify of hosting Eminem’s music, but not paying out the proper royalties, despite knowing full well who owns it. “Spotify has not accounted to Eight Mile or paid Eight Mile for these streams but instead remitted random payments of some sort, which only purport to account for a fraction of those streams,” the complaint reads. Spotify did not respond to a request for comment. Richard Busch is representing Eight Mile Style in the lawsuit; THR reports Busch is a legal heavyweight who’s behind multiple precedent-setting cases in music publishing and copyright. That includes Marvin Gaye’s family’s successful lawsuit against “Blurred Lines” songwriters Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, and T.I. Busch also represented Eight Mile Style in a landmark 2010 lawsuit against Apple and Universal Music Group. That suit, although it was settled, reportedly resulted in artist and label-friendly changes to how digital downloads translated to physical sales. That in turn transformed the way royalties were paid out when iTunes dominated the music industry, THR reports. Eight Mile Style seeks damages that could, at the extreme end, amount to billions of dollars. Spotify, which went public last year, is now valued at $26 billion. Eight Mile Style is also seeking statutory damages on a per song basis, with a total of 243 works in question. That could result in Spotify paying tens of millions, although if Eight Mile Style is successful in disqualifying Spotify from protection under the MMA, it could face more severe financial penalties.

Jayde Adams: The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face review – a pop at pop-feminism
Pleasance Courtyard, EdinburghThe Bristolian standup’s blunt good sense is deployed to optimal effect in taking fashionable feminism in the Instagram age to taskAfter several shows in which showbiz and song featured as prominently as standup, Jayde Adams doesn’t think she’s being taken seriously enough as a comedian. This year’s offering sets out to fix that. Having not read a book in seven years, Adams has been boning up on feminism. The glam couture has been swapped for a black turtleneck, uniform of the earnest. The Bristolian is not impressed by fourth-wave feminism – or by how Beyoncé and the Kardashians represent it – and is here to take it to task.The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face – good title – is certainly a departure from her previous work, if not the great leap forward some have perceived. (The pop it takes at Beyoncé’s feminism is reheated from previous shows.) Adams pours cold water on the progressive claims made for pop culture icons, arguing they conceal the more radical work being done elsewhere. Perhaps – just perhaps – Jay-Z grabbing his wife’s backside onstage isn’t really advancing the gender equality cause, while Adams posits a very droll analogy for the attractive actor Jameela Jamil writing a book about body positivity.

That seems to be a running theme whenever I hear these stories about voice-activated assistants.
