Is EMI trying to bribe radio stations?

Aftonbladet tells that EMI Svenska is having a big draw for all the radio stations that play “Wish I Could Fly” a lot. The producers of 14 Swedish radio channels can win holiday trips, luxury goods and restaurant visits. EMI demands that the radio stations give “Wish I Could Fly” the highest priority between January 11 and 31, or they play it at least 17 times between January 11 and 17. “Damn suspicious. It’d be nice to test this in the court and see if they take this as bribing”, says Per Alexanderson, music chief of P3 radio station.
