Good Morning Silicon Valley: Mr. Jobs, it's almost time for your periodic contribution to the Beatles Preservation Fund

Good Morning Silicon Valley: Mr. Jobs, it's almost time for your periodic contribution to the Beatles Preservation Fund: "'When it first happened with the iPod, we said, 'What could they be thinking?' ' a Beatles legal insider once said of Apple's alleged transgressions. 'They knew we had the agreement, and that we'd won a lot of money from them already.' Things have changed a bit in the ensuing years though. Apple's argument that iTunes is a data transmission service and as such isn't bound by the agreement preventing it from distributing content on physical media may protect it from damages this time around."
