As you know, the British rock band Pink Floyd started a legal battle with a record company last year EMI. The reason is the sale of individual compositions through stores such as iTunes or Amazon.
No, musicians are not against e-commerce at all. They only object to their albums being broken into separate parts. After all, it so happened historically that each album Pink Floyd considered to be one. The recording studio thought otherwise.
By the way, cooperation with EMI has been going on for almost five decades. During this time, hundreds of millions of copies of the group's albums were sold. By the way, Pink Floyd was one of the few really famous bands that did not terminate their association with EMI after the last one was acquired by the company Terra Firms.
The court recognized the correctness of the musicians. It was back in March. However, EMI filed an appeal. But the case was again decided in favor of the group.
The result was reconciliation. Pink Floyd и EMI, with the subsequent conclusion of a new contract, lasting for five years. In the new contract, the impossibility of splitting albums for sale in any way is considered a separate clause. Now EMI is obliged to remove from the sale all the compositions that were posted separately.
