Court rules Eminem owed royalties by Universal; Universal to fight ruling

Posted on

The Wrap is reporting that the U.S. Court of Appeals has overturned a lower court decision and ruled that Eminem’s music publishing company is owed royalties by Universal Music Group for songs downloaded through iTunes and as cellphone ringtones. An attorney for UMG said the company would file for a new hearing. The final decision could have greater implications as other artists attempt to get a bigger share of digital downloads.
