I guess I need to be careful about that apple logo
I better not start using this site to sell any music, or the Beatles will be breathing down my neck (of course, at an earlier time in my life, that would have been the fulfillment of a dream):
Two legendary companies in the music industry faced off in court Wednesday in a trademark battle over a piece of fruit.
Apple Corps Ltd., the Beatles' record company and guardian of the band's musical heritage and business interests, is suing Apple Computer Inc., claiming the company violated a 1991 agreement by entering the music business with its iTunes online store...
The computer company's logo is a cartoonish apple with a neat bite out of the side; the record company is represented by a perfect, shiny green Granny Smith apple...
The 15-year-old agreement between the two Apples had ended a long-running trademark fight in which each agreed not to tread on the other's toes by entering into a ''field of use'' agreement.
Of course, it's a good deal more lucrative to sue Apple; their pockets are just a mite deeper than mine. But still, one can't be too careful.
