The long-running legal spat between Eminem and Apple has been concluded with a secret settlement of his complaints. Eminem was outraged that an early iPod advert had the cheek to use a kid singing along with Lose Yourself - presumably what really pissed him off was the outing of his average fan of being prepubescent kids. In an especially nasty move, Eminem had also been taking action against MTV and Viacom for showing the ad - reminiscent of the way Robert Maxwell and John Major used to impose a loophole in libel law to beat their opponents into submission - and they've signed up to the new peace deal.

Eminem will doubtless be trousering a tidy sum.
