British Apple loses to American Apple over iTunes Music Store

Apple Corps contended that Apple Computer had broken a 1991 agreement, under which each agreed not to enter into the other's field of business. However, [British] Judge Edward Mann ruled that the apple logo was used in association with the store, not the music, and thus wasn't a breach.

Apple Corps represents the interests of the Beatles, who set it up in 1968. It is still owned by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, the widow of John Lennon and the estate of George Harrison.
