According to the source, the representatives of the legendary pop band Beatles are negotiating with music e-tailers for an exclusive distribution deal. The market value of the classic band seems to be everlasting, so the price tag for the exclusive deal will be huge.
"One of the things that has held back digital music online has been lack of availability of very popular artists, notably among them The Beatles," said Jupiter Research analyst Michael Gartenberg. "If they are able to come to some sort of licensing terms, it bodes very well for the online model and would probably pave the way for some of the other holdouts to come online."
.. "We've had several discussions with them, because we think it would be terrific to make all The Beatles' work available in digital services," said EMI spokeswoman Jeanne Meyer. "We would be delighted if they made that decision."Source: News.com
