Apple denies Beatles deal with iTunes Despite widespread rumors to the contrary, Apple has denied all claims that the Beatles catalog is set to be made available through the company's iTunes platform. A spokesman even called the claim "unsubstantiated speculation."
The rumors claimed that sources close to Sir Paul McCartney had confirmed that a deal had been made for the Beatles catalog to become available through iTunes in a "few months" but has so far been denied by EMI and Apple Corps, the Beatles' own label.

The Beatles' catalog, certain to be a gigantic hit when it becomes digital, has been delayed for years over a simple trademark dispute between Apple Inc. and the label Apple Corps.. The case was resolved in early 2007 and many had hoped that would be the last hurdle.

McCartney himself added fuel to the fire last year when he said in an interview that the catalog becoming digital was inevitable. "It's down to fine-tuning, but I'm pretty sure it'll be happening next year, 2008."

Where have they been all these years, I think the catalog went digital a long time ago. They need to jump on the wagon soon, and join the rest of the 21st century.

A dollar here a dollar there is better than no profit.

From "Piggies", Beatles - 'The White Album', 1968 :

Look at all the little piggies crawling in the dirt.
And for all the little piggies, life is getting worse....

....In their lives there's something lacking.
What they need's a damn-good whacking!

....Everywhere there's lots of Piggies, living Piggy lives.
You can see them out for dinner with their Piggy wives.
Clutching forks and knives, to Eat-Their-Bacon.


(Kinda makes me laugh). :)
