The Beatles finally agree to sell their music over the Internet

One of the bastions of anti-digital music sales has finally caved into the trend. The Beatles have just announced that they will start selling their music over the Internet. They have not as yet explained how or where.

And given that they are still in a major legal scrap with Apple over their use of the Apple brand on iTunes (the Beatles have a company called Apple Corp which has the rights to the fruity brand in music creation etc.) - I guess we can expect that they may not go that route out of the blocks!

For Beatles fans this is exciting news. And one that other digital shunners such as Garth Brooks may even take note of. Let's face it over the next couple of years all muscians will embrace the media - they have no choice.
