That's... Uh The Deal

So EMI can no longer permit Pink Floyd albums to be sold as individually downloadable tracks, against the band's wishes.

Wanting people to only be able to obtain their music as full albums – continuous, coherent compositions rather than merely bunches of songs – it seems Pink Floyd inserted specific clauses in their contract, so this clarification of the law (a 'record' refers to a recording, not a physical storage format) might only apply to this one band, but it's going to be interesting to see how other artists with similar preferences respond.
