Pink Floyd Set Legal Battle Against Record Bosses


The rock icon battle bosses at record label EMI over online royalty payments, challenging the parties to 'unbundle' the band's album and sell individual tracks online.

Rock icons Pink Floyd have launched a legal battle against bosses at record label EMI, in a dispute over online royalty payments. The "Wall" hitmakers were represented by lawyer Robert Howe at London's High Court on Tuesday, March 9, where Howe challenged EMI's ability to "unbundle" the band's albums and sell individual tracks online.

Howe claims a contractual clause between the parties "expressly prohibited" such "unbundling", or the selling of tracks other than in their original configuration whether in physical or digital forms. The rockers, who signed with EMI over 40 years ago, are also disputing how the marketing costs of its music are calculated. The case continues.

On another new, Pink Floyd receive an honor as their album covers are featured in stamp by Britain's Royal Mail. The stamp, which is 22.4cm x 18.9cm, is sold for 3.90 pounds. Led Zeppelin, David Bowie and Coldplay's records sleeves are also available on the Royal Mail website.
