Bluebeat, Company That Sold Beatles Songs For A Few Days Online Last Year, Found Guilty Of Infringement

    Late last year, a company named Bluebeat popped up online and it started selling Beatles song for the ridiculously cheap price of 25 cents a pop. The site got shutdown after a few days–when EMI and Apple and the Beatles cried foul–seemingly destining itself to be sued into oblivion quickly. That happened this week, when a judge found the company guilty of copyright infringement, being that it never had any license to sell the Beatles’ catalog on the Internet at all. The details of the suit are sure to be astronomical, being that Bluebeat sold the most vaunted catalog at discount prices. But we’ll have to wait until details are announced. Expect the remnants of Bluebeat to be beat down. [DS]
