EMI suit gets to the courtroom

Posted by madhack on Mar 9, 2010

Pink Floyd's royalties lawsuit against longtime label EMI, first reported 11 months ago, has made its way to court.

Not mentioned much in the news coverage is the question of whether the results of this case, should it not be settled, could end up establishing a precedent (at least in UK courts) for how artists' online music sales are calculated. Though it's well known that the band doesn't exactly need the money, EMI will likely not be finding much public sympathy as a record label, either.
