• Audi response to accusation of ripping off the Chrysler/Eminem ad is the commercial is not actually a commercial

      Ok, Audi, come on now. A few days back we reported that Audi was in some hot water for "sampling" Eminem's music and mimicking aspects of the Chrysler Imported from Detroit ad. An Audi representative has responded to a lawsuit filed by the music publisher by claiming that the ad is not an advertisement. Huh? We aren't making it up, an Audi representative stated, "The video referred to is not an advertisement." Good luck with that guys.

        if music exec's all sued each other for songs with the exact same chord progression, the courts would be clogged up for years

        No, this is pretty blatant.
