Eminem via Eight Mile Style, the company that handles song licensing for the rapper, has filed a suit in the German court system against Audi for unauthorized interpretation of the song 'Lose Yourself' according to Jalopnik and the Detroit Free Press.
The video, used by Audi during the A6 launch event in Berlin, has been criticized as being too close to Chrysler's own commercial for the Chrysler 200 starring Eminem. Thus far, Chrysler is not involved in the matter.
