    Big Mistake

    If Disney and Apple can set aside the differences they have regarding Pixar then I think EMI, the reaming Beatles and/or their executors of their estates should set aside their differences as well.

    iTunes is the number one legal download music store. They are quickly becoming a significant market share holder in all music sales (downloaded or store bought).

    It would seem to me that if the catalog of The Beatles as well as the works of the individuals were released on iTunes that sales would be through the roof. And really what does Yoko Ono care where the sales came from. Money is money.

    By not offering music on iTunes is like not offering CD's at Walmart.

    I guess one can always resort to limewire ;-)

    It's Yoko

    .. she doesn't understand a thing about current technology, and most likely uses a PC. She probably feels that:
    - By cutting APple off, she's somehow hurting them and contributing to getting them to a settlement.
    - That she'll make a mint on the ringtones (wrong).

    greatest hits

    Oh, so we can't participate in raping Lennon's corpse? What a shame...

    Last time I checked he wasn't working on any new music, unfortunately.

    Yawn

    s**** The Beatles, or what's left of 'em. What is the problem with embracing a new, legal technology? And the bizarre legal battles over Apple was just ridiculous.

    Here's a better idea than buying anymore beatles CDs. Go to the library. Check out the Beatels CDs. Rip and enjoy. Then Yoko doesn't get any more money. Maybe she'll end up getting evicted from NYC.

    Yoko Ono

    Doesn't "Yoko Ono" translate as something like "look after number one"? Nuff said!

    How Ironic

    "I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
    speaking words of wisdom, let it be."

    Let it be, eh? Sounds like good advice to me.

    iTunes store

    I've three ipods, and don't care about the iTunes store.
    They have too little small labels.

    Apple vs. Apple

    Apple Records really needs to just get over itself. The lawsuit is stupid. Nobody's going to confuse the two companies. People will still buy Beatles and solo-former-Beatles songs and albums and give their hard-earned money to Michael Jackson or Yoko Ono.

    To quote a few dozen people over the course of history: it's the music, stupid! People don't care about who owns what; they just want to listen to the music they like.
