Apple, Sony/ATV Deny Beatles Heading to iTunes

Apple and the company that owns the rights to the majority of the band’s music catalogue have denied the current string of reports claiming music from The Beatles will appear soon on iTunes.

Reports claiming music from the band will show up online soon – clearly emanating from within Paul McCartney’s inner circle – have been circulating for the past week.

Last night, an Apple representative dismissed the claims, telling Billboard: “This is not news nor is it a scoop.”

More denial, too, from Sony/ATV Music Publishing, a joint venture between Michael Jackson and Sony which owns the rights to the majority of Beatle’s tracks. A spokeswoman for Sony/ATV Music Publishing told CNET News.com that the reports are “untrue.”

Had an agreement been reached, Sony/ATV would have “absolutely” been informed.
