You can't sue for something like that. Even the most diligent lawyer would be laughed at and the case would be dismissed in a heartbeat. I could sue for Intellectual property of this idea, however. Which I do.

My main objection is how petulant and childish and insecure it made Paul seem - like he was unfamiliar with the concept of "alphabetical order".

Well, now the legacy and legal dealings are in Sean Lennon's hands.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/ne.....-Sean.html

Yoko Ono has stepped back from work and handed business interests to Sean

He has been appointed director at eight companies linked to Lennon and Beatles

They include Apple Corps and Lensolo, managing John's solo music rights

I hope he handles everything well. That's a big weight to carry. I wonder if he will allow Paul to have McCartney-Lennon on some songs? Could he do that?

It's been signalled for a while, most obviously with his credit as producer on Gimme Some Truth : The Ultimate Mixes and fronting the BBC Lennon at 80 documentary.

I hope he cheapens things a bit. I need some John Lennon chip clips and hand towels.

I'm hoping there is some nice stuff coming out for Christmas. Turkey basters, Christmas pudding coins, luxury Christmas crackers with inspiring song lyrics and funny quotes, Santa gift stockings. There is a whole market out there which Apple haven't shamelessly exploited yet.

What slogans would be on these items? "I crawled off to sleep in the bath (towel)" "In the middle of a bath" "I wanna hold your chips" with an alternate for the UK "I wanna hold your crisps"

Eight chips a week.

All you need is this towel.

Nobody told me there'd be towels like this.

I'm chippin' out.

Tons of foods with few alterations.

Bless Stew

Whatever Gets You Thru The Tripe (since it's inedible)

Jealous Pie (could be a brand filled with various different flavours)

Watching The Wagon Wheels

Beef Jerky is a given.
