Eminem’s people are determined to force Apple (AAPL) to cough up cold hard cash in settlement of the outstanding litigation over download sales of the artist’s music. Eminem’s music publisher has asked a U.S. District Court judge in Detroit to enforce the settlement reached in a lawsuit against Apple. Never before disclosed, this turns out to be a rather substantial $2.2 million.
The publisher filed its request with the courts just a few months after Apple and Aftermath Records lost an appeal case pertaining to the litigation. The Court of Appeals determined Eminem’s publisher is entitled to 50 percent of sales proceeds, not the 12 percent it had received.
