Eminem sues Facebook over copyright

Eminem's song publisher is suing Facebook and an
ad agency, saying they copied music from one of
the rapper's songs.
Eight Mile Style filed a federal lawsuit in Detroit on
Monday alleging that a 30-second Facebook ad
broadcast online last month copied music from
Eminem's 2000 song "Under the Influence."
The Detroit Free Press ( ) reports that the ad was
featured in a webcast by Facebook founder Mark
Zuckerberg to announce Facebook Home, an
interface for Android phones.
The complaint says Portland, Ore., ad agency
Wieden+Kennedy copied Eminem's music "in an
effort to curry favor" with Facebook by catering to
Zuckerberg's personal likes and to "invoke the
same irreverent theme" of the song.
Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes declined
comment. A message seeking comment was left
Tuesday with the ad agency.
