Beatles Vs EMI

(Gigwise) The remaining members of The Beatles are launching legal proceedings against music labels EMI and Capitol. Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr plus the families of John Lennon and George Harrison allege that the companies fraudulently "pocketed millions of dollars" from the band between 1994 and 1999.

The lawsuit was launched back in December and claims that the labels falsely classified some copies of Beatles albums as faulty, but went on to sell them. EMI requested for the case to be thrown out of the New York State Supreme Court last week, but this was rejected.[see full story for more] - Click here for the Full Story
