Apple Corps Ltd, the Beatles record company, has filed a law suit against Apple Computer Inc for allegedly breaching an agreement on the use of the famous apple logo and name.

    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.
