UK newspaper The Times Online reports that "a battle over name rights between the Apple Computer and Apple Corps, the Beatles' record label, , according to Steve Jobs...Mr Jobs told The Times that the two sides' latest quarrel looks destined to be decided by a judge. He said: 'It’s really stupid. We can’t reach an agreement, but the courts could drag on for a few years.' Apple Computer and Apple Corps signed a pact a decade ago on what each can do with the name, but now disagree on its terms. Mr Jobs said: 'We’re going to have to take it to court to find out who’s right.'"
