Submission + - Eminem Sues Apple for iTunes Sales (macworld.co.uk)

puk writes: MacWorld UK is reporting that Eminem's publisher is suing Apple, alleging that his label, Universal, did not have the right to authorize online sales of digital versions of Eminem's music. Therefore, they argue, Apple is violating Eminem's copyright by selling his songs through the iTunes Music Store.

Of course, if this turns out to be the case, Universal may also be on the hook for the damages, if indirectly. Looks like another case of trying to figure out whether old contracts authorize new activities...
