    I think the Rutles posed more of a threat to the Beatles than Apple v. Apple. I cant imagine anyone confusing the two. Hell, a lot of people dont realize:

    iPod is an Apple product.
    iTunes is part of Apple.

    Would be cool to see the Beatles Catalog on iTunes; it can only benefit both parties.

    I agree.

    But greed and a sour taste can be powerful forces.

    In addition to you remarks Rich, I post the following.
    I conversation inspired by this whole ordeal took place on a college campus recently.
    *note no one but me is an apple user in the following conversation, one is a sophomore male gamer, the other a freshmen female english major.

    Me - "What do you think of when you hear 'Apple'"
    Group - "I don't know" followed by "ipods"
    Me - " anything else?"
    Group -pause- "nope"
    Me - "you guys know who the Beetles are, right?"
    Group - "Heck yeah" and "I love the Beetles!"
    Me - "Do you know the name of their record company?"
    Group - With looks of *wtf* "uh, no."
    Me - "apple records"
    Group - this time with looks of *who cares* "okay..."
    Me - *starts talking about lawsuit*
