Pink Floyd win EMI court ruling over online sales


The British Rock band Pink Floyd has won its legal battle against the EMI record label over internet downloads.

EMI has been stopped from selling individual Pink Floyd tracks online - or as mobile ring tones - without the band's permission. The band says its albums should be bought and played as a whole.

So where does this ruling leave the music industry? Jamie Robertson spoke to copyright lawyer Robin Fry.
