Apple Nabs Beatles' Granny Smith Trademark
Chalk up another trademark victory for Apple.
According to published reports Thursday, Apple has become the legal owner of the well-known logo for Apple Corps, which - if you're not familiar - is the holding company/owner of the record company for a little band that you may have heard of. I'm referring, of course, to the Beatles.
On 5 February 2007, Apple Inc. and Apple Corps announced a settlement of their trademark dispute under which Apple Inc. would own all of the trademarks related to "Apple" and would license certain of those trademarks back to Apple Corps for their continued use.
"We love the Beatles," late Apple chief Steve Jobs said back in 2007. "and it has been painful being at odds with them over these trademarks. It feels great to resolve this in a positive manner, and in a way that should remove the potential of further disagreements in the future."

This is a stupid dispute.
Apple should be happy they are associated to the Beatles and should have left it alone.

How long until we're eating "The Fruit Formerly Know as Apple"? I wonder what it will be renamed to?

Just more of Apple trying to own everything and everyone they can. When I see the Beatles Apple Logo I instantly think Beatles. I will NEVER associate it with Apple computers.
What came first? The Beatles Apple Corps, or Apple computer? I rest my case...

Whats next maybe AIR,FOOD, MEDICINE,and to even think that apple could get control this.
Makes me think that letting corps. start throwing there power around isn't going to help make the
World a better place,this is just sad,, MONEY,apple wants it and will take at any cost.
Use pic of apple get your *** sued!
