In his “Byte of the Apple” column on BusinessWeek this week, Alex Salkever offers a nice overview of the ongoing battle between Apple Computer and the Beatles’ Apple Corps (see related stories). Salkever provides some history on the issues and offers an educated guess at just how the trial/settlement might go. “This is one suit that appears to present a strong chance for an Apple Computer win. However, it’s nearly impossible to predict judicial logic — even if the judge owns an iPod, as the one hearing this case does,” writes Salkever. “But if Apple Computer should lose this legal battle, it still has the artillery triumph in the digital-download war. Maybe it could finally ink a deal with Apple Corp that adds those much-missed Beatles songs to the iTunes Music Store.”
