Beatles tunes getting digital facelift

(UPI Entertainment News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)London-based Apple Corps Ltd. is digitally re-mastering the entire Beatles catalog for online sales, it was reported Thursday.

Apple Corp Managing Director Neil Aspinall made the revelation in a written statement submitted to London's High Court in the label's copyright infringement suit against Apple Computers, E! Online reported.

In the statement, Aspinall said Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and the widows of John Lennon and George Harrison had decided to re-master the catalog digitally to make it sound brighter and better.

Apple Corp is talking with different Internet music retailers but there was no timetable for the project, a spokesman confirmed.

A ruling is expected this month on the label's legal claim that Apple Computers violated a 1991 settlement by using its fruity logo to promote its iTunes online music store.

Under the settlement, Apple Computers promised not to use its logo on anything related to the music industry. The computer giant argued in court it was using the logo in iTunes ads to promote the software, not the music.
