Paul McCartney sues to get Beatles songs back from Sony

Paul McCartney wants his Beatles songs back.

The pop music legend filed a lawsuit against Sony/ATV Music Publishing on Wednesday in an attempt to regain the rights to a long list of Beatles hits that he either wrote or co-wrote with John Lennon.

Songs such as "Yesterday," "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and a slew of other Beatles hits are subject to the suit, according to court documents.

McCartney is arguing that the 1976 Copyright Act should allow him to start reclaiming ownership of the songs from Sony/ATV next year. Sony (SNE) declined to comment on the matter.

The lawsuit is the latest move in McCartney's decades-long pursuit of the rights.

Sony and entertainer Michael Jackson formed Sony/ATV in 1995, a decade after the King of Pop paid $41.5 million to acquire the ATV catalog, which included many Beatles songs. Jackson outbid McCartney to clinch the deal.

Sony took full control of Sony/ATV last year after Michael Jackson's estate agreed to sell its 50% stake for $750 million.

McCartney began sending Sony/ATV "termination notices to reclaim his copyright interests in his musical compositions" in October 2008, his lawyers say in the complaint.

His notices should start taking effect on Oct. 5, 2018, beginning with the rights to "Love Me Do," according to the court documents.

McCartney is asking the court to declare his terminating rights are not a breach of publishing agreements.

His lawyers are concerned about a decision by a U.K. court last year involving the pop group Duran Duran. The court found in favor of a Sony/ATV subsidiary that sued Duran Duran members for breach of contract when they tried to reclaim rights to their songs.

I saw Eight Days A Week at the theater this summer. As an added bonus, the entire Shea Stadium 1965 concert (in color with great sound) was shown immediately after the movie. 8)

I did too, 2 or 3 months ago when it was showned at "Le Clap" in Québec.
I thought then that these 4 guys had to be very patient to endure all that screaming night after night.
I, for one, would have blowned a fuse !

Odd to realise that all that popularity they received was an important seed of their future breakup.
Nevertheless, the music never stopped till the end.

You might be high - but you'll never be Paul McCartney playing a sitar on the floor of Abbey Road Studios while wearing moon boots and underpants on your head - high.

Can I get it without the picture of George Harrison? How much?

Looks like he's in his Sitar phase...

I watched this on the plane to Florida 2 weeks ago, excellent, especially the part about the shea stadium concert and how bad a performance it was said to be but when they unearthed the original recording connected to the the instruments and the micks it turned out it was perfect performance that did not come off correctly over the PA system and how amazing it was since the band could not hear themselves much less each other, a tribute to how well rehearsed they were... :idea:

Beatles were great but Sgt Pepper is mostly a bunch of shit. For years and years folks tried to pass it off as the greatest album of all time. Strawberry Fields Forever and even Penny Lane would have helped the album tremendously. If Beach Boys Smile came out, say, in March of 1967, Sgt Pepper would have blown less minds. Pepper was the Beatles chasing Brian Wilson but they were not good at it. A Day In The Life is the only great song on the album. I realize some guys can't experience the Beatles objectively but Sgt Pepper is just about their worst album. It does not age well. Their previous album Revolver is one of their best. The White Album is the apex. There's not one song on the original side one of Abbey Road I ever want to hear again. Maybe I played it too much or maybe it was never that exciting. It's bland compared to the White Album. It might be the only Beatle album where McCartney wrote my favorite song (YNGMYM). Here Comes The Sun is lightweight fluff. There's nothing wrong with that but All Things Must Pass should have kicked off side two instead. Simply because it's an infinitely better song. Here Comes The Sun should have been given to Partridge Family. Of course, then Harrison would have needed a new title for his 3rd solo album. Or, he could have still used the song on his solo album. He had two Isn't It A Pitys.

Help is a great album. Right?

Downer

In my formative teenage years I was doing a lot of airbrush art mixed with other media while extremely high... :smoke:...Sgt.Peper and Abby Road were two of my go to albums with my super cool head phones to drown out the sound of the compressor...I can agree that Sgt.Peper wore thin after multiple listening while Abby Road seemed for me at least to get deeper and deeper, it could have been the Thai stick... :mrgreen:

Other favorites at that time were
FZ - ONS, Apostrophe, OSFA, Roxy

Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs

Anything Budgie

Maggot Brain

I'm embarrased to say it but Autobahn

Johnny Winter Live

Rory Gallagher Live

I had a shit load of Stones and favored Sticky Fingers, Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out, Goat Head Soup..so many

David Bowie everything

I'm sure I am missing others... :?

Slight off ramp I would sometimes work into the wee hours in the morning, my room was in the far east of the house and my parents were in the far west...one night my Dad got up and must of heard the relentlessly running of my compressor and came through 3 doors to reach my room and scared the cramp out of me because I did not hear he enter and he tapped me on the shoulder... :shock: ...I must have flew 3 feet in the air like one of those cat videos and spilled paint on the piece I had put hours of work into...he didn't care he just wanted to know what the hell was going on... :evil: ...I have always done my best work between midnight and 4 am I've never been sure why... 8)

Nice, Plook. Thanks for sharing. After midnight always seems to be a highly creative time. I do think Walrus and Blue Jay Way achieved what they seemed to be chasing on Pepper. Great, heavily produced psychedelic songs. It's All Too Much as well. And, of course, Strawberry Fields Forever.

Why the hell is McCartney wearing sandals or flip flops or whatever? They're on the beach for fucks sake, and he was barefoot on the cover of Abbey Road.

I guess you haven't spent a lot of time on the beach in the midday sun. That sand burns...

Right. Unlike the pavement on Abbey Road.

It would make more sense that Sir Paul was worried about pieces of shells or maybe earlier he was climbing on rocks that were covered with barnacles.

But let's not make excuses for the "artist".

Yoko Ono added to Imagine writing credits

Image

More than 40 years after the song's release, Yoko Ono is receiving a songwriting credit on John Lennon's classic Imagine.

The surprise announcement was made at an annual meeting of the National Music Publishers Association in New York on Wednesday.

They explained the move by playing a clip of Lennon saying Imagine "should be credited as a Lennon-Ono song".

"A lot of it - the lyric and the concept - came from Yoko," he said.

"But those days I was a bit more selfish, a bit more macho, and I sort of omitted to mention her contribution.

"But it was right out of Grapefruit, her book. There's a whole pile of pieces about 'Imagine this' and 'Imagine that.'"

Imagine no possessions

How hard is that? Yoko must have been insincere.
