Beatle Recordings in Digital Download Limbo for Now

The Beatles and their various estates and representatives have not come to any agreement with EMI to release the band's catalog as a digital download.  Paul McCartney would like to see this happen, "because I think it should," as he's quoted in an interview with the AP.  Yes it should, though when potentially vast sums of money are involved the deals become harder.  Watch for it to happen sooner or later, followed by lawsuits claiming that the practical efforts to make the recordings available will not have matched the technical requirements of the contract.  Or something like that.  [MG]
