Old Eminem sues ringtone companies @ 10-07-2005, 07:36 AM
#1

Eminem is launching a multi-million dollar lawsuit to stop mobile phone companies using his songs as ringtones. Lawyers representing the controversial rapper have filed writs, in a Detroit court, against five firms to prevent them earning money from his music without license.

As well as ringtones, Eminem is also planning to sue karaoke firms who reproduce any of his back catalogue - which includes the worldwide hits 'Stan', 'Just Lose It' and 'Mosh' - without permission and without paying him royalties.

The hip-hop star's spokesperson said: "This is a big business. We're talking hundreds of thousands of dollars a year here." Eminem's decision comes in the wake of a recent US report, conducted by Jupiter Research, which claims the ringtone market in the States was worth more than $217million in 2004, with the figure expected to triple by 2009.
