In the long, ongoing trademark battle between Apple Computers and Apple Corps (The Beatles record label), a decision was finally arrived to by the judge this morning announcing that Apple Computers has the right to use its logo in iTunes and other media related devices.
The claim by Apple Corps is that Apple broke an agreement between the two companies which stated that Apple couldnt use its logo in the advertising and distribution of music. With the advent of iTunes and the success of the iPod, Apple Corps found it necessary to sue on the grounds that this agreement was broken.
A business man to the last, Apple CEO Steve Jobs reacted to the ruling, saying: "We are glad to put this disagreement behind us. We have always loved the Beatles, and hopefully we can now work together to get them on the iTunes Music Store." Representatives from Apple Corps have already stated that this is not the end and that an appeal will be immediately filed.
