Have you wondered why there are no Beatles records in Apple’s iTunes Store, or available anywhere online (legally)? Who should be blamed? The Beatles? Apple? Or, oh, I don’t know—could it be, uh, SATAN! Yes, it’s the record company executives. Dan Whitworth in NewsBeat quotes Paul McCartney:
It’s been business hassles. Not with us, or iTunes. It’s the people in the middle, the record label. There have been all sorts of reasons why they don’t want to do it.
Record labels are dinosaurs.
