Pink Floyd Beats EMI

Pink Floyd has successfully beaten their record company, EMI, in the courts over whether or not their music can be sold individually by track on-line.  The band has argued that a clause in their contract should prevent EMI for selling their songs separately, as it was signed in 1999, before digital downloads took off.

“Their lawyer, Robert Howe, argues that his clients want to “know where they stand as a matter of contract” and is concerned that EMI’s “entitlement to sell individual tracks, or indeed any tracks, otherwise than in the original configuration of the Pink Floyd albums” and that they’re “wrongly exploiting” the group.

After they originally won their case in March, EMI appealed the decision, and now, the Court of Appeal has once again shut them down.”
