Beatles Lose Trademark Case

Sorry to hear the Beatles' Apple Corps lost the trademark suit against Apple Computers. They plan on appealing (no pun intended), but I'm not surprised that Apple Computers won. The Beatles have won numerous other lawsuits against Apple Computers (or settled out of court), so the computer giant was due a win.

I wonder if the Beatles' lawyers ever posed this question: What if the Beatles' Apple Corps decided to make Beatles music available online through their own website, which would be called something with the word Apple in it and would use the famous Granny Smith logo on the site? Would Apple Computers be able to sue Apple Corps?

Who knows?

Where's Allen Klein when you really need him?
