Rapper Eminem is suing Audi over what he believes is a copyright infringement case, using one of his songs in a promotional video for the new A6 Avant.

Eight Mile Style, which oversees Eminem’s copyrights has filed for an injunction against the German automaker in Hamburg Regional Court, alleging the sound track used in the background of the spot is the very same music from his “Lose Yourself” song.

Bu the overlap extends well beyond just the song, with the Audi video a near copycat of Chrysler‘s “Imported from Detroit” ad that ran during this year’s Super Bowl.
