!!!! Eminem is sued !!! - peep
« on: April 11, 2002, 02:21:47 PM »
French jazz pianist Jacques Loussier filed a $10 million copyright infringement lawsuit against rapper Eminem in New York on Thursday (March 28), claiming some of the music used in the latter's "Kill You" was lifted from his own work.

Loussier, who gained fame as the founding member of the Play Bach Trio in 1959, claims the backing track on "Kill You" is a little too similar to an instrumental jazz fusion work of his titled "Pulsion."

"The conduct of [Eminem] as alleged in this complaint was never authorized, licensed, permitted, or ratified by [Loussier]," alleges the suit, as quoted by the BBC.

Loussier named Eminem, Interscope Records, and the label's parent company, Vivendi Universal, in the suit and is seeking some $10 million in damages as well as a broadcast ban on the song. "Kill You" appears on Eminem's mega-successful 2000 album The Marshall Mathers LP.

Loussier's Play Bach Trio sold over 6 million albums in its 15 years of existence. In the '70s, Loussier set up his own recording studio, where Pink Floyd recorded its 1979 double-album, The Wall. His latest works, Play Bach, No. 1 and Play Bach, No. 2, surfaced last year on Universal/Decca Records.
