Well, that all happened back in 2014, and it was heard in court in May. She ruled that the National Party track "substantially" copied "Lose Yourself". That is, quite frankly, quite a lot of money.

The High Court has awarded $600,000 to Eight Mile Style which published the song, the fee being the "hypothetical licence fee" since 2014 if they had been given permission to use the song for their advertising. It copied the essential elements that made Lose Yourselfa global hit.
Attorney Garry Williams, representing Eminem, noted that the rapper rarely licensed the song and that it is a "jewel in the crown of Eminem's catalogue".
Goodfellow said National "purchased the piece of production music from a reputable Australian-based music production library, who had purchased it from a U.S. supplier". It was calculated and intentional. "The National Party was also a very willing licensee, because they specifically wanted the Lose Yourself sound". He said they found out that National's advertisement was originally set to use "Lose Yourself" before settling on "Eminem Esque". Being licensed and available for purchase, and having taken advice from our suppliers, the party believed the purchase was legal.
