Report: Beatles To Sell Songs Online
The lawsuit by Apple Corps (The Beatles) against Apple Computer (Steve Jobs) has taken an interesting twist. The trial ended about a week ago with a decision to come some time after Easter. Testimony be Neil Aspinall, one of the road managers for the group and head of the company disclosed as a witness that Apple the label is preparing new masters of the Beatles catalog for sale through online music services. No details as to what "new masters" means or if any deals have been struck. The Beatles have never shown any interest in selling online before. Any music service with serious ambitions would lust for Beatles product. This should shake up the market.
Here's the Reuters report via the Washington Post.
