    There has been a dispute between Apple Corps and Apple Inc. (once known as Apple Computer Inc.) for some time now - it originally dates back to the late 1970s. After a settlement of $80,000 in 1981, Apple Inc. agreed to stay out of the music business as part of the deal, and both companies carried on as they were. But during 2006, Apple Corps (which was founded by British band The Beatles) claimed that iTunes and the iPod broke the agreement and has been trying to sue Apple Inc. ever since. However, today it has been revealed that the two have settled their differences, and although very little information about the agreement has been revealed, it seems both sides are now happy with the outcome and there is even the possibility of an iTunes deal to let Apple Inc. sell The Beatle’s music, although that isn't certain.

    Personally, I will never understand how Apple Corps still manages to exist. exactly WHO is paying for The Beatles music? While we all heard it in our childhood... this music, IMO, is rubbish. I cannot fathom who would buy Beatles records or CDs today. But they do!

    The second thing I never understood is that many if not most of the songs are about drugs and easy living... yet how many schoolchildren are taught to sing "Lucy in the sky..." and those other drugs or sex songs?

    Someone should sue Apple Corps for promoting, pushing and pimping in schools.
