Eminem Won the Appeal in Royalty Dispute

The court ruled that Eminem’s former production company entitled to half of digital music sales, not the 12% that Universal Music Group had been giving it. The court therefore reversed previous ruling which equaled digital music sales to physical ones. This time the court found that Eminem’s music was “licensed” to digital music retailers, which means that it was covered by the higher royalty split.

While record labels aren’t tired to complain that peer-to-peer is stealing money from musicians working hard to write the music for fans to enjoy, they oftentimes seem to work harder than anyone to cheat performers wherever they can.

As it was revealed recently, the artists now can make less than 3% from their music sold after deducting the cost of things like the cost of producing and distributing the music, or breakage.

F.B.T. Productions, Eminem’s ex-music production company, has been fighting against UMG (Universal Music Group) over the royalty rate it deserves for digital songs downloads on Apple’s iTunes.

The previous ruling said that Eminem was entitled only to the lower rate of 12%, which is the standard amount for physical albums, and rejected to grant him 50% that musicians earn if their work is licensed for use. F.B.T. Productions recently appealed that ruling, saying in the briefs that a digital download can’t be equaled to a physical sale, because it’s rather a license on a master recording. This way, F.B.T. believed that digital sales should fall under the “master license” provision.

This time a 3-judge panel for the US District Court for the Central District of California agreed with F.B.T. and ruled that the agreements between the two were “unambiguous.” The court found that the music was licensed when the master recording was used, as Apple’s iTunes is exactly that case. The court therefore reversed the earlier ruling and vacated the district court’s order concerning the attorneys’ fees. The judge pointed out that the “Records Sold” provision of the contract provides that F.B.T. entitled to between 12% and 20% of the revenues derived from physical records sales, and to 50% of net receipts for the use of master recordings, used by Apple’s iTunes.

Meanwhile, Universal Music Group insists that this ruling can’t apply to other performers since it’s handed out only to one specific recording agreement. It plans to appeal the ruling.

phoenixcrash avatar@mickeytime: Submit your comment again, only this time make it make sense. This isn't a win for anyone, it's just a promotional stunt to help promote his new album. Eminem and Ludacris should get together and do a duo-album, and entitle it "I Used To Be Worth A Damn".
