TRADEMARKS - Apple Inc. vs. Apple Corp, a long and winding road

Date:

As of today, Thanksgiving 2010, the Beatles have sold over two million individual songs and almost half a million albums in a single week on iTunes, bringing together two formerly bitter rivals with the same name - Apple Inc and Apple Corps.

This is a big deal for two reasons, one of which is legal in nature and the other of which is simply cool.

Regarding the latter, it’s nice to see that a band that called it quits forty years ago still resonates with today’s digerati.
