Eminem Settles Ringtone Battle
Rap superstar EMINEM has settled a lawsuit against a company he claims profited from his songs as mobile phone ringtones. Two publishing companies representing the star, Eight Mile Style and Martin Affiliated, filed suit last October (05) in a bid to stop five firms from selling Eminem ringtones on the net. A deal was settled with one of the companies, Colorado-based Cellus US. The company has agreed to stop distributing the ringtones, Cellus lawyer MARY MARGARET O'DONNELL says. It's not known if a settlement was paid. Eminem's lawyer HOWARD HERTZ says, "We reached an amicable agreement."
