Eminem’s publisher has filed a lawsuit against Spotify for copyright infringement on hundreds of songs.
Eight Mile Style accused Spotify of reproducing 250 of the rapper’s songs including “Lose Yourself,” according to a report published Wednesday by The Hollywood Reporter. However, Spotify does not have any license to stream Eminem’s songs. Meanwhile, the publishing company claimed the streaming service has streamed Eminem’s compositions billions of times without providing compensation.

“Spotify has not accounted to Eight Mile or paid Eight Mile for these streams but instead remitted random payments of some sort, which only purport to account for a fraction of those streams,” Eight Mile said in the filing.
