Eminem Urged to sue US Government

Recommended Posts

SoulMatrix

Eminem could sue the US government for playing his music to inmates at Camp X-Ray, Guantanamo Bay, without permission.

The Road To Guantanamo director, Michael Winterbottom,discovered that prisoners at the notorious detention centre, are blasted with Eminem’s records as a form of punishment. Says it all really doesn’t it Em?

Winterbottom also claims that Eminem should take the military to court for copyright abuse, his film, which follows four British male prisoners at Camp X-Ray discovered that:

“Music by Eminem was apparently used most of the time.”

"So the boys' lawyer, Clive Stafford Smith - who is currently trying to bring a case against the Americans for their mistreatment of prisoners in Guantanamo - has said that."

He concludes on teen music.com:"Eminem would have good grounds for suing the government over abuse of his copyright."

If it is a purchased, ligitimate copy of his work (some of it pretty decent-and I'm not a rap fan), there's little that can be done....he has been compensated and there is not an 'end-user license' to determine what can be done with the product after purchasing...He could sue, but to probable little good. :P

Didnt we use Spice Girls as physcological warfare on a group of entrenched militants somewhere? I remember reading something about that in either Afghanistan or Iraq.

Edit:

Never mind, that was from that movie Toy Soldiers, lmao.

Eh heh, Eminem as punishment. What a great idea. :lol:

Although if Em. were to sue, wouldn't he be admitting that his music is horrible enough to be used as punishment? :hmm::rofl:

Unfortunately, this lunatic wouldn't have any rights to sue for copyright infringement.

I think he's just P-O'd that his "music" is bad enough to be used as a torturous methodology somewhere :D

..and...IT IS THAT BAD.

I'd make them listen to Tiny Tim and Michael Bolton. If they're lucky, maybe a lil' bit of David Bowie. I wouldn't be anywhere near that place.

Ok, everybody...sing along...

"It's a small world after all...

...It's a small world after all...

.........It's a small world after all...

...It's a small world after all..."

Well...I think that the above song is far better to torture people to. An hour from now you will still have the song rolling around in your head...

Or how about

"This is the song that never ends

It goes on and on my friends

They started singing it not knowing what it was

And they'll continue singing it

Forever just because

This is the song that never ends..."

And yea, I get annoyed hearing some eminem songs over and over again. Then comes the headaches lol. I'd rather listen to Hedley.
