Beatles Briefly Put Bootleg on Sale to Maintain Copyright

A 59-track Beatles bootleg album was officially released on iTunes for $40 yesterday. The only problem is that the collection, titled The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963, was only purchasable for a few hours before it was pulled from iTunes.

The BBC has reported that The Beatles and their label, Apple Corps, may have made the bootlegs available in order to extend the contents’ fifty-year copyright. Because the songs were technically released they will be protected for up to seventy years. Had the collection been kept private, the recordings would only have been protected for fifty years and other record labels could potentially have profited from them.

Whew, thank god, Paul and Ringo are both almost broke.

I think that enough people/corporations other than the Beatles have profited from their work. Why let other record labels profit from the Beatles songs contained in the most recent offering? Well done.
