The National Party has lost the copyright case for using a "sound alike" version of the Eminem song Lose Yourself in a 2014 election campaign advert.



It should pay $600,000 plus more than two years interest, Wellington High Court judge, Justice Helen Cull, said in her decision issued on Wednesday.

The National Party had paid $4802 for the licence to use the "soundalike" music library track Eminem Esque, but the copyright holders for Lose Yourself said it was so close to the original that it breached copyright.
