It is still very early in the week and we have a settlement already? Nice! Settlement frees up the court dockets. Folks the budget cuts that courts are experiencing nationwide is putting tremendous strain on our court systems and court resources. So, when parties work it out, all players are relieved and ultimately it is a good thing for tax payers.

Eminem settles his June 2011 copyright infringement suit against Audi that I told you all about. This is great  news for Audi and Shady’s camp. Audi just has to pay whatever the settlement agreement is plus give a big chunk of change to one of Slim Shady’s charity organizations. Infringers be warned.

“Audi has now settled the case out of court though the complete terms have not been released. Both parties are said to have reached the deal amicably and one of the terms was that Audi would charitably support the revitalization of Detroit by contributing to selected social projects.

In a formal statement, Audi said it has “tremendous respect for Eminem and his works, and likewise for the ‘Imported From Detroit’ campaign which was created by Chrysler, and certainly Audi would never wish to insult or harm those parties or their fans and customers.”

Likewise, a spokesperson for Eight Mile Style added: “Eight Mile is very pleased that this dispute could be settled quickly and amicably. Eight Mile is very impressed by Audi’s openness to discuss and reach consensus on the issues involved.”
