Aftermath/Interscope Sued For Unpaid Eminem Royalties
According to Billboard, The Bass Brothers' FBT Productions and Joel Martin's Em2M claim, in a lawsuit they filed in Los Angeles federal court on Monday (May 21), that the aforementioned labels owe them 50% from downloads and master ringtones.
The companies claim they were underpaid by more than $650,000 from 2002-2005 since they did not receive 50% of the net receipts from the digital downloads.
FBT and Em2M are seeking a court order confirming their right to 50% of money earned from digital downloads and ringtone sales, as well as compensation for lost revenue.
Eminem is not named in the lawsuit.
