Two legendary companies in the music industry faced off in court Wednesday in a trademark battle. Apple Corps, the Beatles' record company and guardian of the band's musical heritage and business interests, is suing Apple Computer, claiming the company violated a 1991 agreement by entering the music business with its iTunes online store. Geoffrey Vos, a lawyer representing Apple Corps, argued in Britain's High Court that characterizing the download system as an electronic device was a "perversion" of the constraints laid down in the companies' agreement.

Apple corp. had made a prior agreement in which Apple would stay out of the music business. Apple, the computer company violated the terms of an earlier deal, and should pay. Apple computer has/had a logo that infringed on trademark rights of the Beatles recording group, Apple corp. When the Beatles recording company thought of that original logo of the Apple they put the logo on their own product in order for it to be recognized with music, furthermore the music of the Beatles. Now when I think of the term "Apple" I think of I-pod which is music, and not the type of music I am supposed to be thinking of.
