Apple to contest lawsuit
Apple Computer will return to London's High Court today to , the company that represents the interests of the Beatles, Bloomberg reports. The lawsuit stems from a supposed breach of contract by Apple Computer. The two companies have previously gone to court and agreed that Apple Computer could use the Apple name for computers, while Apple Corps would retain the exclusive rights to use it for music. Following the release of the iPod and iTunes Music Store, Apple Corps filed suit against Apple Computer in July 2003. Apple Computer responded by filing its own suit in October 2003 in a U.S. court, seeking a declaration from Apple Corps that the agreement has not been breached.
