Eminem's publishers and executives at Apple Inc. have settled a lawsuit over 93 songs the rapper's bosses alleged were not permitted for download.
Apple executives and publishers at Eight Mile Style reached a deal on Thursday (01Oct09) in the dispute over royalty payments for the Stan hitmaker's tracks, offered to fans via the iTunes Internet music service.
Bosses at Eight Mile sold song rights to Aftermath Records but claimed the label was not authorised to make a separate deal with Apple and offer the songs as downloads.
Eminem's publishers also claimed Apple gained $2.58 million (£1.72 million) from the iTunes downloads, including over $465,000 (£310,000) from the rapper's 8 Mile soundtrack hit Lose Yourself.
Details of the settlement have not been publicly disclosed.
