British Court Hears Apple v. Apple and 'Le Freak' - New York Times

British Court Hears Apple v. Apple and 'Le Freak' - New York Times: "Mr. Vos also showed a television commercial for iTunes, featuring the British band Coldplay performing 'Speed of Sound.' The ad features the Apple Computer logo alongside a reference to 'iTunes.com,' and promotes a Coldplay album.
'We know what they're selling with that,' Mr. Vos said.
One band that Mr. Vos was unable to highlight on iTunes was the Beatles themselves. Apple Corps -- which is owned by Ringo Starr; Paul McCartney; John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono; and the estate of George Harrison -- has so far refused to license the Beatles' music catalog for digital sales. That makes it one of only a handful of bands still unavailable via legitimate online music sites."
