    Apple Corps suit focuses on Apple Computers' music hardware

    Apple record label filed the suit on 4 July, Associated Press said, citing a company statement. The filing seeks unspecified damages and an injunction to enforce the terms of a 1991 agreement regarding the use of the name and logo.

    The complaint is primarily concerned with Apple Computer’s use of the logo for its new application for downloading pre-recorded music from the Internet.

    “Over a decade ago, Apple signed an agreement with Apple Corps., a business controlled by the Beatles and their heirs. Unfortunately, Apple and Apple Corps now have differing interpretations of this agreement and will need to ask a court to resolve this dispute,” Apple Computer said in a  statement.

    Apple Corps is owned by Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono and George Harrison’s estate.
