CBS Songs v Amstrad


CBS Songs v Amstrad

“Without the facilities provided by the electronic equipment industry, the entertainment industry could not provide entertainment in the home, and could not, for example, maintain orchestras which fill the air with 20th century cacophony or make gratifying profit from a recording of a group without a voice singing a song without a tune.”

per Lord Templeman in CBS Songs Limited v Amstrad [1986] FSR 159 delivering the unanimous judgment of their Lordships.
