We All Live In an Apple Submarine
From an Apple Press Release:
“Apple® Inc. and The Beatles’ company Apple Corps Ltd. are pleased to announce the parties have entered into a new agreement concerning the use of the name “Apple” and apple logos which replaces their 1991 Agreement. Under this new agreement, Apple Inc. will own all of the trademarks related to “Apple” and will license certain of those trademarks back to Apple Corps for their continued use. In addition, the ongoing trademark lawsuit between the companies will end, with each party bearing its own legal costs, and Apple Inc. will continue using its name and logos on iTunes®. The terms of settlement are confidential.”
This dates me, but my dad is a huge Beatles fan. He has all of their albums on vinyl, from what I can tell, and bought them when they originally came out. Growing up, I’d hear them all the time either from his records, or him singing bits of the biggest hits. Certain classics like Help! will always be in my heart. Now knowing that Apple could very shortly have the Beatles on iTunes makes me one happy iPod owner.
