Apple vs. Apple in CA
, a U.S. judge has ruled, the Los Angeles Times (free subscription required) reports. Apple Corps, a company owned by Beatles members and their families, filed suit against Apple Computer last year, alleging the iTunes Music Store violates a 1991 agreement between the two companies. Apple Computer for its part denies that allegation, which was filed in a London court, and responded by filing suit against Apple Corps in a California court requesting that a judge rule that Apple Computer has not in fact violated that agreement.
