Apple vs Apple ruling

A judgment in the Apple Computer versus Apple Corps court battle will likely be handed down on Monday, May 8th. Both sides have been arguing their cases since late March when Apple Corps, which is owned by the former Beatles and their heirs, filed a suit against Apple Computer for breaching a $26 million settlement in 1991. Apple Computer agreed to veer away from the music business, while Apple Corps was awarded rights to the name for "creative works whose principal content is music." Apple Computer was allowed to use of the name for "goods and services... used to reproduce, run, play, or otherwise deliver such content." The presiding justice Edward Mann will decide whether to grant an injunction preventing Apple Computer from using its logo within iTunes, according to Macworld UK.

    Hmmmmm.

    Sounds like Apple Computer is in the clear, since iTunes is a "service... used to reproduce, run, play, or otherwise deliver such content."

    Crush those Beatles

    No one likes annoying and pointless bugs! This case was pathetic from the beginning.

    I think Apple Corps is beginning to realize that there is more money to be made by embracing the online music model than fighting it and that Apple could be their best friend, not the enemy.

    Hey Apple Corps, give peace a chance...
