Beatles lose to Apple in trademark case -

I had to come out of hiding for this: Beatles lose to Apple in trademark case. An interesting decision in ongoing litigation between the two Apples. The decision? Apple Computers is not in breach: an earlier confidential settlement specified that Apple would not sell music using its Apple logo/name, but it specified sales of physical items, apparently, and iTunes distributes digital files (of course). Interesting distinction, and another example of how new technologies complicate the IP landscape.
