As the collective tech and media press throws up its arms in utter frustration, Paul McCartney said that negotiations have once again stalled regarding whether or not The Beatles‘ catalog of music will be available in Apple’s iTunes Store, according to Wired.
“That is constantly being talked of, we’d like to do it,” McCartney said in a Billboard interview. “We are very for it, we’ve been pushing it… But there are a couple of sticking points, I understand. So the last word I got back was that it had stalled, the whole process. They [EMI] want something we’re not prepared to give them. Hey, sounds like the music business. It’s between EMI and The Beatles. What else is new.”
We’ve been sick of this back-and-forth for a while now; at least since March. At any rate, there it is. Don’t forget; if you want to listen to The Beatles on your iPod or cell phone, you can rip a CD.
