EMI Throws Tantrum Over Beatles Downloads, Yells “I Want That!” at BlueBeat.com, Sues and Throws Sand in Their Face on Playground

When EMI and Apple Corps got wind of this, they screamed… they cried… and they sued. EMI has reportedly filed a lawsuit against BlueBeat citing “copyright infringement and misappropriation of pre-1972 sound recordings.” BlueBeat has yet to comment on its predicament.
