Members of the legendary rock act, Pink Floyd have launched a legal battle to stop their songs from being sold individually on iTunes and other music websites.
The band wants to exercise creative control and is trying to force its record company EMI to sell only complete albums, as they are meant to be heard as “seamless” pieces of music, reported
Daily Mail online
EMI has allowed the band’s songs to be downloaded individually following the emergence of MP3 players and the iPod in recent years.
The band’s lawyer Robert Howe said EMI was arguing that prohibition applies only to the physical product and not online. However, EMI insisted that the agreement applied only to records.
