It’s unfortunate that the supposedely ‘free’ and ‘enlightened’ generation is stooping to such lows over a name. And all because of money! Of course! As usual it’s the lawyers who make out like bandits. 🙁

The Beattles should let this matter rest and go back to digging for 8mm home movies from their archives that they can sell to the television stations.

If Apple Computer was recording their own music albums that could possibly be mistaken for Beatles albums, then I could understand this frivolous lawsuit.

I’m taking bets on whether the lawsuit is resolved before or after the Beatles’ reunion:
(yeah, that need a bit of updating)

the whole thing is disgusting. F*ck “Sir” Paul McCartney, he was always only about money. No soul, and Yoko Ono should know better. It’s a disgrace to John Lennon…

When was the last time one of the four members of the Beatles released an album of new material on “Apple” records? None of the members even bothered during their solo careers. McCartney was on Cap/EMI, Lenon on Geffen/WB, etc. Apple Records exists just as a legal entity to collect royalties for the estates of the former members. Does the presence of a computer company in any way infringe on their ability to continue to do the same?
All this is a shakedown.
What’s next? Is MacIntosh, the stereo component manufacturer, going to sue Apple for the use of the term Macintosh? At least they have been making products the last 30 years. If they don’t have a problem with it, I cannot see Paul, Ringo, and the rest having a problem.
P.S. As an American, I don’t recognize the appendage “Sir”. We fought a war to get rid of that shit over 200 years ago. The only people I address as “Sir” are men I respect. Paul and Ringo are not among that number any more.

Bang bang Apple’s silver hammer came down upon their heads…
