Submission + - Unreleased 1963 Beatles tracks on sale on iTune: Copyright fraud (cnn.com)

Taco Cowboy writes: Back in 1963 the Beatles did some performances on BBC and other places and the songs were recorded but were never officially released. 50 years later, just before their copyrights are about to expire, Universal packaged them, 59 tracks in all, and put them on sale on iTune for $40 per downloadable pack.

The reason ? Copyright Fraud

By release the 59 tracks on iTune, the songs will be protected under copyright laws for yet another 20 more years.
