Find all EMI songs in the iTunes Library
Authored by: DougAdams on Apr 06, '07 09:29:45AM
Kirk, do this AppleScript
do shell script "mdls " & quoted form of POSIX path of ((choose file) as string) & " | open -f"
on the suspected files to see what pops up. Maybe "EMI" is not in the copyright metadata.

No, it's Capitol.

So, for this to be useful, it will need to parse EMI and all their labels...

I appreciate the script and the hint and find it interesting even if we'll not need it for later.

Trying the code above to find the metadata, however, I find that not every song lists a line for 'kMDItemCopyright'. None of my 'Pink Floyd' does, for instance.
