a legal dispute with the British Sky Broadcasting prompts this name change.

Please note, many Apple Records issues also carry an EMI logo. This is not a label and EMI should not be added as a label, it instead indicates that Apple was part of the EMI Group.

Apple Corps Ltd. was incorporated by Beatles, The in 1967 and the band launched its record label division early in 1968. Through a complicated series of deals, the Beatles licensed its records from EMI, which then handled distribution on Apple's behalf. This arrangement has, more or less, continued to the present.

Between 1968 and 1974, Apple released some 40 albums by other acts, the most successful being Badfinger. However, since then it existed solely to administer the Beatles' catalogue (group and solo) released between 1962 and 1976.

The label was, for three and a half decades, run by Neil Aspinall on behalf of the four Beatles and their heirs, but he retired in 2007 to be replaced by Jeff Jones. In 2009, after decades of wrangling, the company reached an agreement to license the Apple trademark (not the logo) from Apple Inc. the world-famous computer and electronics company. In 2010, a massive
remastering campaign of the label’s entire catalogue began.

If using a half ounce of common sense will prevent confusion of the two then ... Just, Let. It. Go.

Yes let it go, as in Let it be, or drop it if you will. The hypersensitive litigious crap is doing nothing for the people, or business in general for that matter. It's simply making a bunch of ruthless bottom feeding scumbag lawyers filthy rich. While the rest of us have to suffer through the consequences of having the English language ripped to shit.

Next they'll be sued by Canonical for being too similar to the Ubuntu One cloud storage name.
