Nasty stuff. He made the 2nd kids directors?! Unfortunately the very simplicity of the will might shut the legal door on redress.

Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

A company which appears to be representing the estate of concert promoter Sid Bernstein are suing Apple over the rights for the Shea Stadium concert footage, claiming Bernstein instigated the filming and owned the copyright, which has been being illegally used by The Beatles (and later Apple) since 1966.

The complaint said [Bernstein] helped stage the group's Aug. 15, 1965, performance at Shea, and arranged for TV variety show host Ed Sullivan's production company to film it.

But the plaintiff, which said it was assigned Bernstein's rights, said the group's manager, Brian Epstein, took custody of the "Master Tapes" and began using them without seeking consent.

It said the recording was later used in the 1966 movie The Beatles at Shea Stadium, the 1995 documentary The Beatles Anthology, and the 2010 documentary The Last Play at Shea about Billy Joel's concerts there two years earlier.

I think it would be far more fun to submit the answers.

I find it amusing considering if you so much as mouth a Beatles song in public without getting permission from Apple you risk a lawyer coming up and issuing you with a lawsuit.

A few days late with this, but it slipped my mind. Running from a few days ago until 26 February 2017, the V&A Museum in London has an exhibition called You Say You Want a Revolution ? Records and Rebels 1966-1970.

Among the exhibits are:

John and George's Pepper suits...

and...

John's jacket from the All You Need Is Love  broadcast...

and the mosaic from John's swimming pool that was discussed in another thread a couple of days ago.

So, if you're into that kind of thing, and are in London between now and the end of February, you might want to plan a trip to the V&A.

"Sony CSL Research Laboratory is releasing an album next year of songs written by Artificial intelligence, and the first hit track may be this uncanny number programmed in the style of The Beatles...

The effort was not totally computer generated, of course. French composer Benoît Carré arranged and produced the harmonies for the songs. He also wrote the lyrics. Using Sony's Flowmachines system, the team selected a Beatles style and, well, here it is:"

I had a listen to this and although I think it's quite clever I don't think I'd want to listen to too much more of it.

It sounds like they took a bunch of random Beatle/Solo lyrics and mushed them together.

Ringo Starr debuts new song for UN's International Day of Peace

BY ALLISON SADLIER

Ringo Starr released a new song, “Now The Time Has Come,” in partnership with the United Nations in honor of International Day of Peace on Wednesday.

“I worked on this record with Peace & Love,” said Starr in a statement. “It was a joy to be part of this project.”

The former Beatle co-wrote the song with producer Bruce Sugar. Richard Page, Colin Hay, and Billy Valentine all lent their vocal talents to track, and social media sensations Christian Collins, Maddi Jane, Casey McPherson, James Maslow, and Wesley Stromberg are featured as back-up singers.

The song is meant to encourage the social media #HugForPeace campaign to promote a day of non-violence through the peaceful act of hugging.

More information and the video are on Ringo's Facebook page

Now The Time Has Come

The United Nations - United Nations, Ringo Starr and Digital Stars Debut “Now The Time Has Come” for International Day of PeaceLOS ANGELES, CA – September 21, 2016 – Today legendary musician, Ringo Starr , in partnership with the United Nations debuted “Now The Time Has Come”, a moving anthem to commemorate the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, recognized annually on September 21. Co-written with producer Bruce Sugar, “Now The Time Has Come”, with verses sung by Richard Page, Colin Hay and Billy Valentine, the record also features backing vocals from social media superstars Christian Collins, Maddi Jane, Casey McPherson, James Maslow and Wesley Stromberg.“I worked on this record with Peace & Love,” said Ringo. “It was a joy to be part of this project.”The song is part of the massive social media campaign #HugForPeace, a combination call-to-action and hashtag that promotes 24-hours of non-violence on the International Day of Peace through a simple act: a hug. The campaign was launched at the annual Ringing of the Peace Bell ceremony hosted at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on September 16 by UN Assistant Secretary-General Ray Chambers.To ensure that young people play a leading role in the campaign, Chambers has enlisted the support of top social media stars including Christian Collins, Crawford Collins, Melvin Gregg, Maddi Jane, Chloe Lukasiak, James Maslow and Wesley Stromberg – all lending their voices in support of #HugForPeace. Partners include Facebook, Influential Network, Sprinklr, the U.S. Institute of Peace, Princess House and Religions for Peace, among others.“Each and every one of us has an important role to play in championing peace within our communities,” said Ray Chambers, UN Assistant Secretary-General. “I am so grateful to Ringo Starr for lending his talent to unite people through the gift of song. I hope people across the world from Colombia to Syria will heed this call for peace—now.”In 2001, the United Nations General Assembly designated September 21st as the International Day of Peace, devoted to strengthening the ideals for peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The day was also established as an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire. The Secretary-General has asked partners to lend their voices to this call for a laying down of arms, in order to bring about a 24-hour cease fire on September 21st.#PeaceDay #HugForPeace #Peace&Love United Nations #unitednations United Nations
