Beatles on iTunes; parallel imports of copyrighted goods

Foley & Hoag's Trademark & Copyright Law features two posts of interest.
  • In "Apple and the Beatles: The End of a Long and Winding Road?," Sam Hudson views the sale of Beatles recordings on iTunes as the "final act in the resolution of the long-running trademark dispute between Apple Computer and Apple Corp." 
  • In "Supreme Court Evenly Split in Costco v. Omega," Anthony Rufo concludes that "With the ever increasing internationalization of commerce, it is likely only a matter of time before this issue [the unauthorized imports of foreign-made copyrighted goods] again makes its way before the high court."
