Ok but really.Why do record companies do this?
Maybe Metallica should give them some pointers on the crying part of the music scene.

Yeah, because promoting illegal trading of copyright works of artists is a good thing. :rolleyes:

When it comes to protecting an artist's rights regardless of their success or medium from pirating benefits everyone.

This on the other hand has nothing to do with Apple's online store.

Apple protects their trademarks/copyrights in a ferocious manner.. why would you expect anything different from anyone else? Also, a contract is a contract, even for Apple.

Cheers,

P.S. They knew this was coming around for years....

Ummm... doesn't Michael Jackson own the rights to the Beatle songs and not Apple Records?

Jackson has publishing rights I believe, which is different from owning the actual songs. Perhaps someone else can explain the distinction but, in the meantime, here's a funny picture about a possible Beatles/Jackson collaboration.

Chealion, MJ may have sold them back dude. Rumours was that he is/was in a cash crunch after the last record dropped, and that he was indebted to SONY (some say from a purporsefully under-promoted record), and they've been looking @ that cat for a while (ever since he bought it). He and SONY co-own a publ. co. SONY/ATV. Still not certain though. Stopped caring a while back...

This was posted on MacRumors, and the dotmusic article is based on a really old FoxNews article. Absolutely nothing to believe here now... Holds 0 credibility in my books.

FoxNews. In my books they hold no credibility at the moment. (It could change... but its only seeming to get worse).

I did not base this on FoxNews or Mac Rumours at all. I likely read it in Billboard at some point (I subscribe) and I have friends @ SONY. I forget where...
