Verdict Finally Reached In Eminem VS National Party Lawsuit
A verdict has finally been reached in Eminem's court battle with the National Party.
ICYMI, the track 'Lose Yourself' (or a song that sounded just like it) was used in 2014's political propoganda video for the party without permission.
It was announced last year that US-based Eight Mile Style and Martin Affiliated were planning on suing National, saying they never allowed the music to appear in the campaign.
It's just been revealed that the High Court have found National guilty of breaching copyright and awarded damages of $600,000 to Eight Mile Style.
Justice Helen Cull ruled that 'Eminem Esque' was a copy of Eminem's track:
"It was no coincidence that the works sounded the same and the undeniable inference to be drawn from the evidence is that the composer of Eminem Esque had Lose Yourself in front of him at the time of composition."
