The BPI (British Phonographic Industry) today failed in its bid to get an injunction gagging easyGroup and its Internet café business from talking publicly about its row with the music business.

The judge did not see any urgency in the matter and postponed the hearing until next week.

A dozen or so people in orange boiler suits - including easyGroup boss Stelios - waved placards outside the High Court in London in protest against the proposed gagging order.

The row centres on a demand from the music industry for £100,000 in lost revenues after it claimed easyInternetCafe allowed people to burn downloaded music onto CDs.

EasyGroup considers the amount of cash demanded by the BPI to be "extortionate".
