Law Lords rule in favour of Procul Harum’s Matthew Fisher

Baroness Hale, one of the five Law Lords hearing the case, said in her contribution to the rulings: “As one of those people who remember the sixties, I am glad that the author of that memorable organ part has at last achieved the recognition he deserves.”
