Rapper Eminem Settled Ringtone Lawsuit



Lawyers for Eminem has settled a lawsuit over the illegal use of the rapper's songs in ringtones

The legal suit Eminem brought to stop several companies from selling ringtones of his songs via the Internet has yet over. Though so, the rapper's publishing companies, Eight Mile Style and Martin Affiliated, have settled a lawsuit that had been filed back in October with one of the ringtone firms.

As for you to know, Em's companies had filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Detroit against Cellus USA, FanMobile, Nextones.com, myPhonefiles and MatrixM, seeking court orders prohibiting these companies from illegally selling the ringtones. In February, Eminem's attorneys sued a sixth company, Florida-based Phattones Media Productions, making the same claims.

And by last week, Eminem's attorneys reached an undisclosed settlement with Cellus USA, which is based in Colorado which must be approved by U.S. District Judge Gerald E. Rosen in Detroit. Unfortunately, the terms of the deal are under wraps so it is not known whether the company paid any monetary damages to the hip-hopster.
