Apple Computer mounts defense in Beatles lawsuit

Apple Computer opened its defense in London's High Court on Thursday against charges by the Beatles' company, Apple Corps Ltd., that it had violated a 1991 trademark agreement by moving into the music business.
Apple Computer lead counsel Anthony Grabiner argued that the market-leading iTunes music store was primarily a data transmission service, permitted by the agreement."Data transmission is within our field of use," he said.Apple Corps, owned by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono and the estate of George Harrison, has sued Apple Computer twice before.
