BEATLES: Apple Trademark Ownership Settled
The Apple trademark now belongs to the electronics and technology giant.
The Apple trademark now belongs to the electronics and technology giant. But it came at the cost of a half-billion-dollars. CNET.com reports that the final barrier to enacting the 2007 settlement Steve Jobs' company reached with The Beatles was eclipsed this week when a suit by a Canadian company Apple Box Productions Sub Inc. was dismissed. The trademark was officially registered to the makers of MacBooks, iPhones, iPods and iPads on Thursday -- with the Beatles licensed to continue using it on their music and films.
