The Battle Over the Beatles: Capitol Records v. BlueBeat

Earlier this week BlueBeat began offering 25 cent downloads of the Beatles' catalog of music. Only problem: BlueBeat did not have a licensing right to do so. Further, the Beatles' catelog is not available anywhere legally for digital download. EMI has now filed suit seeking a temporary restraining order. EMI's (Through Capital Records) Complaint, BlueBeat's reply, and EMI's response to the reply are below. Head over to Copyright & Campaigns for analysis of the case.
