The publishing company for hip hop icon Eminem has filed a lawsuit against Spotify in Nashville, Fox 17 reports. Publisher Eight Mile Style LLC. owns and controls Eminem's compositions and claims in the suit Spotify is unauthorized to use his music and is in violation of the Constitution. The suit claims Spotify disregarded the exclusive rights of Eight Mile Style by not licensing the rights to distribute or reproduce Eminem's compositions. The suit states "even after the Music Modernization Act of 2018, Spotify did not comply with its requirements."
