Apple issue legal action

The Beatles’ company, Apple Corps Ltd, have issued legal proceedings against EMI for £30 million.

Filed yesterday at the High Court in London (December 15), the suit was issued in the New York Supreme Court too, against Capitol Records and EMI.

Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr were also named as claimants along with the late John Lennon and George Harrison’s successors.

The suit claims that there has been a breakdown in negotiations with EMI over unpaid song royalties.
