False Alarm: Beatles Still Not on Online Music Stores

The Beatles will not appear on an online music store any time soon. Wippit, some small potatoes online store, just “announced” that they secured the rights to sell Beatles songs online. Except they were lying. EMI, the company that owns the rights to the Beatles’ music, told them to remove the inaccurate press release or they’d unleash hell.

Frankly, I don’t see why people are so anxious to see the Beatles appears on an online store. They’ve been online for ages now.
