Pink Floyd Win Court Battle against EMI!


The former members of Pink Floyd have won their High Court battle with record label EMI in a case relating to the online sales of their songs.

They had taken EMI to court over a contract negotiated in 1998 and 1999 which stipulated that their songs were not allowed to be sold individually without prior permission. Lawyers for EMI had argued that the contract did not apply to online sales through services such as iTunes – which launched after the contract was signed.

A judge at the High Court in London today (March 11) ruled in the band’s favour, saying the contract contained a clause to “preserve the artistic integrity of [Pink Floyd’s] albums”, reports BBC News. Full Story at NME
