Eminem - Eminem Sues Car Maker For Unauthorised Use Of Song

Rapper Eminem has filed a lawsuit against German car maker Audi for allegedly featuring one of his songs in a European commercial without his permission.
The star previously authorised the use of his hit Lose Yourself to Chrysler in February (11) for an ad to promote their latest model release.
But now he has learned Audi bosses are using the same tune in a commercial which was unveiled at a Berlin press event last week (begs23May11) - without his consent. Eminem has issued a cease and desist order against the company.
It is not yet known which advertising agency is responsible for creating the clip, which is now available on video sharing website YouTube.com.
Bosses at Chrysler, based in the rapper's home town of Detroit, Michigan, have credited Eminem with giving them a financial boost - sales increased by 154 per cent after the star offered up his track for the commercial, in which he stars.
