Pink Floyd wins battle against EMI
London: After nine months, rockers Pink Floyd have won the right to have the band’s music sold only in album form and not as individual tracks.
The group triumphed over record bosses at EMI after they admitted breaching an agreement with the band to only sell their music as full albums, reports the Daily Express.
EMI had signed a deal with the group that banned them from selling single tracks online or songs as ringtones.
They were found to have violated the order in March and immediately filed an appeal challenging the court’s decision.
The case went before the Court of Appeal in London on Wednesday and the officials ruled in Floyd’s favour once again, stating the deal was put in place to preserve the band’s integrity.
