Apparently, last time the Beatles version of Apple sued the Steve Jobs version of Apple, the computer version undertook to stay out of the music business.

The Beatles version is now seeking damages from iTunes for breach of the agreement.

Seperately, iTunes are facing legal action in France where the decision might be that Apple have to make all the material on iTunes compatible with all mp3 players, not just the iPod.

I'm so pleased I'm not Steve Jobs.

Do you think that, whoever loses will take it to the court of ap-peel? :wink:

Hopefully they'll get right to the core of it.

And they'll get the Ap-peel court to turnover the decision.

There might be a lot of new innovations that would stem from this decision.

It all sounds a bit seedy to me.

Isn't that redundant as caramel sticks to everything anyway?
