Apple Computer and Apple Corps, the Beatles' record label, have been in legal disputes since 1981, just five years after Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded the computer company in Jobs' garage. Originally, Apple Corps sought sole ownership of the name "Apple" as a corporate title, yet they finally agreed to use the title for music, while allowing Apple Computer to use the title for computer systems. In 1989, Apple Corps sued the computer company for breech of contract, accusing them of violating the original agreement because it was selling music synthesizers.
although I loved the Beatles music I have serious doubt that the "all you need is love" ideal carries much weight... boy you've got to carry that weight...
I was flabergasted when Paul (worth over $500M) didn't buy the rights to Beatles music and let Michael Jackson buy it. Then a few years later Paul asked if Michael would give him the rights to his favorite song...
My message to Apple Corps... GET OVER IT. You're no longer contributing creatively to humanity, as far as I can tell, so let Apple Computer use their creativity to help spread music to the masses, including the Beatles... because "ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE..."
all though kkrimmer makes an excellent point, Apple corps WILL WIN. It was established in 1968 when steve jobs was still in his diapers. Apple records contributes better music than apple comp. Read my lips. APPLE CORPS WILL WIN. The power of the Fab Four is still intact. and quit mcoking the Beatles, you ass.
