EMI squashes hopes of early online Beatles launch

Wippit Beatles Music

Claims that The Beatles' music would be online early are untrue, according to a statement by Apple Corps' parent company, EMI. British online music store Wippit claimed in an announcement dated in advance for March 14th that it would carry The Beatles' catalog, making it the first to do so outside of the questionable Russian site AllOfMP3. However, EMI was quick to deny the claim and said that it would have the claim removed. The text of the press release itself is absent.

Apple Corps had said last month that it would release the famous band's music in a non-exclusive form, but opted out of naming any particular stores at the time. Apple, Inc.'s iTunes is heavily favored as one of the first after the end of its longstanding feud with the music label.
