  • Eminem publisher Eight Mile Style has filed

Eight Mile Style LLC filed the suit Wednesday in federal court in Nashville, Tennessee, a music mecca in the U.S. It claims Spotify intentionally ripped off the artist, whose legal name is Marshall Mathers, by pretending to have the rights to stream the songs under various generic licenses.

Eight Mile Style is alleging that Spotify clearly knows who owns the copyright to that song and the other Eminem songs it streams, and goes on to question whether the Music Modernization Act is even constituational, as Spotify's "attempt to retroactively wipe out a copyright holder's ability to recover profits, statutory damages and attorneys' fees" is equivalent to "an unconstitutional taking of Eight Mile's vested property right" that violates the Fifth Amendment.

It also says that Spotify has placed "Lose Yourself" into a category called "Copyright Control", a category for songs for which the owner is not known, calling it "absurd" that Spotify would be unable to locate the copyright owner of "one of the most well-known songs in history". According to chart data, Eminem is among the most followed artists on Spotify with monthly listens on par with Bruno Mars, Coldplay and Taylor Swift. The lawsuit also challenges the constitutionality of a landmark music licensing law.

According to the Verge, Eminem publicist Dennis Dennehy stated that the rapper is not a party to the suit, nor was he aware of its filing. The publisher claims the streaming giant has willfully infringed hundreds of song copyrights. The suit alleges that Spotify "didn't engage in the required commercially reasonable effort to match sound recordings with the Eight Mile compositions as required by the MMA". The site added that the plaintiffs are also seeking a judicial order stating Spotify does not qualify from immunity under the reform law and that the provision providing that immunity are unconstitutional.
