"Unfortunately, Apple and Apple Corps. now have different interpretations of this agreement and will need to ask a court to resolve this dispute. Because that's what the Beatles were all about; taking people to court.”
——From a statement by the Apple Corps. legal team
BEATLES FINALLY ON
APPLE’S ITUNES
First, Replace “Sic” and “Lawyers” for “Finally” in the Above Sentence
Like everything else related to music in the online space, Apple’s iTunes online store is the subject of litigation. Apple Corps., the company formed 35 years ago to manage the Beatles’ business interests is seeking a court injunction against Apple Computers, claiming that iTunes’ online store violates the band’s trademark.

Apple Corps. said it filed in a London High Court back in July seeking penalties and an injunction. Little do they know that Apple Computers is based in America. Apple Corps. said the computer company violated a 1991 agreement specifying that it could use the Apple trademark for computer products only.

In a brief statement, Apple Corps. elaborated: “Specifically, (the) complaint is made over the use by Apple Computer of the word ‘Apple’ and apple logos in conjunction with its new application for downloading pre-recorded music from the Internet. Unfortunately, Apple and Apple Corps. now have different interpretations of this agreement and will need to ask a court to resolve this dispute. Because that's what the Beatles were all about; taking people to court.”

Last week, Apple Computers said they had sold the 10 millionth song on iTunes. A Windows version of iTunes is expected by the end of the year, Apple Corps. be damned.

They are also suing users of the cliche “comparing apples to oranges,”saying it must always end with the person choosing the apple.
