On Tuesday, the New Zealand High Court ruled in Eight Mile Style's favour, ordering the National Party to pay $600,000 - not including interest.

The judge ruled the tune used in the advertisement, Eminem Esque, is a 'substantial copy' of Lose Yourself.

'We already have a claim against the suppliers and licensors of the track.' During the trial, lawyers for the National Party claimed the song was inspired by the track but is different.

The song was used in a National television advertisement that ran ahead of the 2014 general election. National went on to win the election and Prime Minister John Key was re-elected for a third term as the country’s leader.
