Not too long ago, there was a rumor that the Beatles would soon join the “online revolution” ... that they would “come together” online. Yeah, we get it. Since I couldn’t work “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road” into my copy, here’s the scoop: Fortune says that Beatles fans will soon be able to download music on Apple’s iTunes.
It looks like Apple might have exclusive rights to the catalog—at least for a limited time. There’s also rumors that a Beatles song will appear in an iPod ad. I hope Paul McCartney is finalizing his divorce before this deal.
It’s sort of amazing that the remaining Fab two-and-a-half (it’s hard to count Yoko) would choose Apple, after their label’s long-running trademark scuffle with the computer maker.
Don’t start searching yet; the deal is still being worked out.
- Apple appears to be getting exclusive rights (at least for a limited time)
- No word on a premiere date
- Details still being worked out
