Beatles iPod: Hurry up, Apple!

Here’s another reason why Apple Records may finally give in to reality and agree to sell Beatles music on iTunes:

Beatles tunes copyright may expire in 2012.

There was a discussion around the same issue with Cliff Richards on Adam Curry’s podcast. A listener called in and compared the issue to a worker having 50 years to make sure he put enough aside to survive retirement. Given a successful musician’s income, that should do the trick. I find that comparison highly appropriate.

I hope the british regulators are being a bit more sensible than the americans, avoiding a second Sonny Bono act.
