Pink Floyd Wins?

Postby Macabre » Fri Mar 12, 2010 1:16 pm

London, United Kingdom (CNS) - Rock legends Pink Floyd has won a court ruling against music label EMI. A High Court in London ruled that the band's tracks may be removed from digital music services.

The group wanted the court to clarify the contract they signed with the major label, which states that EMI is not permitted to sell any of their records as a single without the band's permission.
EMI argued that the word "records" only referred to physical records and not to digital downloads, but the rockers' lawyers insisted that the clause referred to the sale of all of their recordings, not just those physical products.
The judge sided with the band and ordered the record label to pay their legal costs.
But since the judge did not order the label to stop their practice, Pink Floyd's catalogues are still available as a single track download.
EMI said in a statement, "Today's judgment does not require EMI to cease making Pink Floyd's catalogue available as single track downloads, and EMI continues to sell Pink Floyd's music digitally and in other formats."
"This litigation has been running for well over a year and most of its points have already settled. This week's court hearing was around the interpretation of two contractual points, both linked to the digital sale of Pink Floyd's music. But there are further arguments to be on this and the case will go on for some time."
