Apple To Post 59 Bootleg Beatles Songs To iTunes Tonight In Effort To Beat Copyright Issue

By David Richards | Tuesday | 17/12/2013

Apple is set to post 59 Beatle songs that in the past have only been available as bootleg copies.

The new Beatles album replete with several songs not previously sold to the public will be available on iTunes from the night of December 17th in Australia, this beats a copyright expiration in the United Kingdom. The album, called The Beatles: bootleg recordings 1963 will be exclusive to Apple's download service, and will serve to extend the copyright over the recordings for another 20 years. It is not known if the tracks will make it to iTunes radio.

Copyright protection on the 59 tracks rumored to be on the album expires at the end of 2014 thanks to a copyright reform bill recently signed in the UK. Should the tracks not be officially released before then, the Beatles copyright owners lose control of the songs to the public domain.

Roger Stormo, Norwegian blogger from the Beatles-centric "Wog Blog" broke the story last week. The BBC followed up with his report, and expects a large amount of similar releases from the music industry just before expirations to refresh the copyrights for two decades. The BBC pointed to an extremely limited edition of a Bob Dylan album from 2012 subtitled "The Copyright Extension Collection, Vol. 1" as what the music industry will be pumping out at the end of calendar years going forward.

Stormo reports the track list as follows. He noted that the recordings are from the Beatles' archives and are likely of better quality than the versions floating around that were originally recorded by private citizens or radio stations on reel-to-reel tape.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
