Apple Corps Ltd. is a multi-armed multimedia corporation, founded in January 1968 by British rock band the Beatles, to replace their earlier company (Beatles Ltd.) and to form a conglomerate. Its name (pronounced "apple core", as in Peace Corps) is a pun. Its chief division (and the only profitable one) is Apple Records, which was launched in the same year. Other divisions included Apple Electronics, Apple Films, Apple Publishing, and Apple Retail, whose most notable venture was the ill-fated Apple Boutique in London. Apple's headquarters, in the late-1960s, was at 3 Savile Row in London, known as the Apple Building, which was also home to the Apple Studio. apple corps logo File links The following pages link to this file: Apple Records ... apple corps logo File links The following pages link to this file: Apple Records ...

History

The Beatles' accountants had informed the group that they had a large amount of capital which they could either invest in a business venture or else lose to the tax man.[1] In addition to providing an umbrella to cover the Beatles' own financial and business affairs, Apple was intended to provide a means of financial support to anyone in the wider world struggling to get 'worthwhile' artistic projects off the ground[2]. It was pitched to the world's media by John Lennon and Paul McCartney as an attempt at 'Western Communism'.[3] The company name originated with McCartney, coming from a René Magritte painting he'd acquired; 'Apple "Core" (Corps)' was a play on words all the Beatles enjoyed. The ubiquitous logo was designed by Gene Mahon, with illustrator Alan Aldridge transcribing the copyright notice to appear on record releases. The Inland Revenue was, until April 2005, a department of the British Government responsible for the collection of direct taxation, including income tax, national insurance contributions, capital gains tax, inheritance tax, corporation tax, petroleum revenue tax and stamp duty. ... John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980), (born John Winston Lennon, known as John Ono Lennon) was an iconic English 20th century rock and roll songwriter and singer, best known as the founding member of The Beatles. ...

This is not a pipe. ... Alan Aldridge is a UK artist, born in 1943. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


The first two years of the company's existence coincided with a marked worsening of the band members' relationships with each other, ultimately leading to the break-up of the band in 1970. Apple quickly slid into financial chaos, which was resolved only after many years of litigation. When the Beatles' partnership was dissolved in 1975, dissolution of Apple Corps was also considered, but it was decided to keep it going, while effectively retiring all its divisions. The company is currently headquartered at 27 Ovington Square, in London's prestigious Knightsbridge district. Ownership and control of the company remain with McCartney, Starr and the estates of Lennon and Harrison.

Apple Corps has had a long history of trademark disputes with Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.). The dispute was finally resolved in 2007, with Apple Corps transferring ownership of the "Apple" name to Apple Inc., and Apple Inc. licencing it back to The Beatles' company. In April 2007, Apple also settled a long running dispute with EMI and announced the retirement of chief executive Neil Aspinall.[4][5] Aspinall was replaced by Jeff Jones.[6] Between 1978 and 2006 there have been a number of legal disputes between Apple Corps (owned by The Beatles) and the computer manufacturer Apple Computer (now Apple Inc. ...

Subsidiaries

Apple Corps operated in various fields, mostly related to the music business, through a number of subsidiaries.


Apple Electronics

Apple Electronics was the electronics division of Apple Corps, originally founded as Fiftyshapes Ltd. and headed by Beatles associate Magic Alex (alias Yanni Alexis Mardas). Yanni (John) Alexis Mardas, better known as Magic Alex (born May 5, 1942, Athens, Greece), a self-styled electronics wizard, was the head of The Beatles Apple Electronics. ...


Intending to revolutionise the consumer electronics market, largely through products based on Magic Alex's unique (and, as it turned out, commercially impractical) designs, the electronics division did not make any breakthroughs. Even a planned apple-shaped radio could not be produced at a competitive price, and was ultimately beaten out by Panasonic's 'ball and chain' radio. Panasonic is an international brand name for Japanese electric products manufacturer Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. ... The Panasonic Ball and Chain radio was a novelty radio first produced by Panasonic in the early 1970s. ...


After the dismissal of Magic Alex in 1969, during Allen Klein's 'housecleaning' of Apple Corps, Apple Electronics fell victim to the same forces that troubled the company as a whole, including the impending Beatles breakup. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...


While it did not make a dent in the marketplace, Apple Electronics was still considered a viable business entity years later, when Apple Corps and Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) went into litigation. Apple Inc. ...

Apple Films

Apple Films was the filmmaking division of Apple Corps. Notable releases included Born To Boogie, Ringo Starr's 1972 documentary about the band T. Rex; The Beatles' Yellow Submarine,; Concert For Bangla Desh by George Harrison And Friends (1972); and Son of Dracula, a 1974 horror-musical which teamed Starr with singer Harry Nilsson.

Apple Publishing

Apple's music publishing arm predated even the record company. One of the first artists on its publishing roster was the group Grapefruit. Apple published the group's self-penned songs from early 1968, though Grapefruit's records were mostly released on RCA. This article deals with contemporary popular music publishing. ... Grapefruit were a London-based British band of the late Sixties. ...


Apple Publishing Ltd was also used as a publishing stop-gap by George Harrison and Ringo Starr, as they sought to shift control of their own songs away from Northern Songs, in which their status was little more than paid writers. (Harrison later started Harrisongs, and Starr created Startling Music.) For other persons named George Harrison, see George Harrison (disambiguation). ...

Northern Songs Ltd. ... Harrisongs Ltd. ... Startling Music is a music publishing company, founded by musician Ringo Starr, drummer of The Beatles. ...


Probably Apple's greatest publishing successes were the Badfinger hits "No Matter What", "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue", written by group member Pete Ham. "Without You", a song penned by Ham and Badfinger bandmate Tom Evans, became a chart hit for Harry Nilsson in 1972 and Mariah Carey in 1993. In 2005, however, Apple lost the US publishing rights for the work of Ham and Evans.[7] Badfinger were a rock/pop band formed in Swansea, Wales in 1965, and one of the earliest representatives of the power pop genre. ...

Apple also undertook publishing duties, at various times, for other Apple artists, including Yoko Ono, Billy Preston, Doris Troy, and the Radha Krsna Temple. Apple received a large number of demo tapes; some songs were published, some were issued on other labels and only Gallagher & Lyle were retained as in-house writers before going on to co-found Mcguinness Flint. Many of these demos have been collected on a pair of Cherry Red CDs, entitled 94 Baker Street and An Apple for the Day. Yoko Ono Lennon (小野 洋子 Ono Yōko (ONO Yōko), born February 18, 1933) is a Japanese-American artist and musician. ...

Apple Records and Zapple Records

Main Article: Apple Records. Apple Records logo, featuring a Granny Smith apple. ...


From 1968 onwards, new releases by the Beatles were issued by Apple Records, although the copyright remained with EMI, and Parlophone/Capitol catalogue numbers continued to be used. Apple releases of recordings by artists other than the Beatles, however, used a new set of numbers, and the copyrights were held mostly by Apple Corps Ltd. Unlike a mere 'vanity label', Apple Records developed an extremely eclectic roster of their own, releasing records by artists as diverse as Indian sitar guru Ravi Shankar, Welsh easy listening songstress Mary Hopkin, the power-pop band Badfinger, classical music composer John Tavener, soul singer Billy Preston, the Modern Jazz Quartet, and even London's Radha Krsna Temple. A shortlived subsidiary, Zapple Records, was intended to release spoken word and avant garde records, but folded after just two releases: Lennon's and Yoko Ono's Life with the Lions, and Harrison's Electronic Sound.

Savile Row Savile Row Savile Row is a road in the City of Westminster in central London that runs parallel to Regent Street between Conduit Street at the northern end and Vigo Street at the southern. ...


Originally designed by Magic Alex (of Apple Electronics), the initial installation proved to be unworkable, with almost no standard studio features (such as a patch bay, or a talkback system between the studio and the control room, let alone Alex's promised innovations), and had to be scrapped. The Beatles recorded (and filmed) portions of their album Let It Be in the Apple Studio, with equipment borrowed from EMI, and during takes they had to shut down the building's central heating (also located in the basement), because the lack of soundproofing allowed the heating system to be heard in the studio.

Redesigning and rebuilding the basement to accommodate proper recording facilities took eighteen months, and necessitated ‘floating’ the townhouse; a difficult engineering task. The work was completed in 1970 and 1971, and the rebuilt studio (including its own natural echo chamber) offered a wide range of recording and mastering facilities, and could turn out mono, stereo and quadrophonic master tapes and discs. In 1971, it would have cost £37 an hour to record to 16 track, £29 an hour to mix to stereo, and £12 to cut a 12” master. This article is about the technological device. ... Quadraphonic sound uses four channels in which speakers are positioned at all four corners of the listening space, reproducing signals that are independent of each other. ...


The studio became a second home for Apple Records artists (though they also used Abbey Road and other studios) and other artists such as Harry Nilsson, Wishbone Ash, Viv Stanshall, Lou Reizner, Clodagh Rodgers, Kilburn and the High Roads, the Sensational Alex Harvey Band and Marc Bolan (as shown in the movie Born To Boogie) also worked there; the existence of acetates by numerous performers is evidence the studio was widely used.

Legal battles with Apple Computer

In 1978, Apple Records filed suit against Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) for trademark infringement. The suit was settled in 1981 with the payment of $80,000 to Apple Corps. As a condition of the settlement, Apple Computer agreed to stay out of the music business. A dispute subsequently arose in 1989 when Apple Corps sued, alleging that Apple Computer's machines' ability to playback MIDI music was a violation of the 1981 settlement agreement. In 1991 another settlement, of around $26.5 million, was reached.[8][9] In September 2003 Apple Computer was again sued by Apple Corps, this time for introducing the iTunes Music Store and the iPod, which Apple Corps asserted was a violation of Apple's agreement not to distribute music.[10] The trial opened on March 29, 2006 in the UK[11] and, in a judgement issued on May 8, 2006, Apple Corps lost the case.[12][13][9] Between 1978 and 2006 there have been a number of legal disputes between Apple Corps (owned by The Beatles) and the computer manufacturer Apple Computer (now Apple Inc. ...

Apple versus EMI

EMI building in London

The Beatles alleged in a 1979 lawsuit that EMI and Capitol had underpaid the band by more than £10.5 million.
