Pink Floyd FTW


Pink Floyd won an unexpected victory against record label EMI on March 11th when a British High Court judge ordered the company to stop selling downloads of individual tracks

The judge ruled that the original contract which allowed Pink Floyd albums to be sold only in their entirety, not as single songs, was still valid for digital versions because the original contract protects the “artistic integrity of the albums.”

In an earlier post, I wrote about Containers without Context and offered Pink Floyd’s The Wall as an example of an exception to the general observation that most albums are collections of songs with little context or substantive connection. Nice to have my opinion legally validated.
