NEW ZEALAND – Eminem wasn’t involved in the decision to sue the New Zealand National Party for copyright infringement of “Lose Yourself,” but he intends to be charitable with any money he receives, according to Variety.
A rep for Slim Shady explained that Eight Mile Style, the publishers who control some of Eminem’s early catalog, were actually behind the lawsuit. He plans to donate any of his winnings to hurricane relief.
“Eminem was not a party to this lawsuit nor was he consulted regarding the case,” the rep said. “Any monetary settlement he receives from it will be donated to hurricane relief. He encourages the plaintiffs, Eight Mile Style, to do the same.”
