Pink Floyd wins court battle with label

Posted on

According to Reuters, British rock icons Pink Floyd won a suit in London t0day that will halt their record label EMI from “unbundling” albums like The Dark Side of the Moon and selling single songs online as individual downloads and ringtones.

The judge affirmed the band’s assertion that a contract clause to “preserve the artistic integrity of the albums” was valid and relevant to the case. The judge also ordered EMI to pay Pink Floyd’s estimated $90,000 in court costs, and refused the company permission to appeal.

Pink Floyd’s back catalog is reportedly the second most-valuable in the world, behind the Beatles.
