Pink Floyd Beats EMI Again!

pink-floyd-wins-case-against-emi-record-label-over-digital-downloads

Another win!

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!

As we've reported, 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!

Ouch!

Sorry guys! If it's in their contract - you can't do it!

We wonder how this is going to work out, especially given the nature of the suit!!

Pink Floyd is currently in a legal battle with their label, EMI Group Ltd, over what kind of royalty payments they should be awarded in the age of digital music!!

The group's lawyer, Robert Howe, claims their contact prohibits selling tracks "otherwise than in the original configuration of the Pink Floyd albums," while EMI says the rule only covers their physical albums!!

C'mon, EMI!!

Just pay up - they've been with you since 1967, don't skeeve them over now!!
