Rockers Pink Floyd have triumphed in their battle against EMI - record label bosses have been ordered to pay the group $60,000 as part of a dispute over online royalty payments. The "Wall" hitmakers took their case to London's High Court on Tuesday, March 9, with lawyers for the band arguing the company should not be allowed to dismantle the group's albums and sell individual tracks online.

The band's attorney Robert Howe claimed a contractual clause between the parties "expressly prohibited" such "unbundling", insisting the band wants to retain "artistic control" over its work. And Judge Andrew Morritt ruled in the group's favor on Thursday, March 11 - ordering EMI chiefs to hand over $60,000 in costs as an interim payment, with the full amount to be calculated at a later date.
