According to Fox News, Apple Corps., the company that was founded by the Beatles, is suing Apple Computer over the iPod and iTunes.

Apple Corps. contends that, under a long standing agreement, the Apple logo and name would may only be used for computers and never for a music company.

When Steve Jobs founded Apple Computers, the Beatles already had a famous corporation named Apple. Jobs admitted using a similiar name for his company as a "tribute." Apple Corps. sued and won a settlement and the promise that the Apple name would never be used for music. Apple Corps. has successfully sued Apple Computer in the past for violations.

We'll have to see what the courts decide, but a first glance it seems pretty ironic.

Is Apple just horribly mismanaged or do they like losing money?

Pffft... they should get over themselves. 'Sif they don't have enough money already.

You sign a consent decree to end a lawsuit, then you break the agreement, you should expect to be sued. I agree with Sirius...this seems like massive mismanagement. You agree not to go into the music business to settle a lawsuit, then launch iTunes. Doh!!! Oops, I forgot about that lawsuit.....

Speaking of, "Do'h!", how much you wanna bet that Steve Jobs is channeling Homer Simpson's spirit? Lack of organization won't get Apple anywhere in court. "Um, I'm sorry, I forgot. Please don't take my money." Hmm, if Jobs doesn't want to lose money, WHY does he endorse Apple? Sorry all you Apple users out there. Windowblinds and DX2 only work on Windows.

Serves them right, I remember a couple of years back when even the venerable Joe Bevilaqua (on was concerned that Apple would sue him for having 'aqua' in his last name.

Yeesh! Apple vs. Apple?? Can we start saying WHICH apple plz?
Fine,Apple computers should rename to something better then. Or maybe Apple computer corp. should just protect themselves by that thing featured in some of the walls here- merge with Microsoft.
Besides, Apple pc looks blended with Windows functionality? That'll squash Linux flat!

Well I heard that they could possibly lose rights to the Apple name, then what will they be? I have a name, how about overpriced pay alot more for less computers...? hehe

Oh boy, what a lot of FUD going around... More than likely Stevie boy will probably throw Apple Corpse a bone and they will waddle back under that rock again.

OK,I'll add on to Pixine's idea-all in favor of Beatles Apple start d/ling lots of songs off whichever p2p prog you use!
Alert to Apple computers-use all that money you got for those high priced machines and MERGE WITH MICROSOFT!!!
