Finally! Good news!Looks like somethings been settled.
Commenting on the settlement on behalf of the shareholders of Apple Corps, Neil Aspinall, manager of Apple Corps said, It is great to put this dispute behind us and move on. The years ahead are going to be very exciting times for us. We wish Apple Inc. every success and look forward to many years of peaceful co-operation with them.
Commenting on the settlement, Steve Jobs, Apples CEO said, We love the Beatles, and it has been painful being at odds with them over these trademarks. It feels great to resolve this in a positive manner, and in a way that should remove the potential of further disagreements in the future.
This was a joint settlement...
Can someone provide a better explanation of how Apple Corps, Inc. got anything out of this deal?
And thanks to downloads counting towards UK chart positions it's quite possible they could have every spot in the top 10 in the same week. That would be one hell of a PR coup for both Apples.Apple Corps will get their fair share of the deal when the Beatles tracks go on iTunes and become some of the most heavily downloaded songs.
Seems Apple Corp sold out and took it from SJ.
Auntie said:Apple Inc will now take full control of the Apple brand and licence certain trademarks back to the Beatles' record company Apple Corps for continued use.
