Website Must Pay $950,000 For Posting Beatles Songs

BlueBeat.com, a website that streams and sales music, agreed to pay record labels nearly a million dollar to settle a federal lawsuit for selling Beatles songs. The site sold the songs for 25 cents apiece before they were legally available.

The settlement with music companies EMI Group PLC, Capitol Records and Virgin Records America was approved by U.S. District Judge Josephine Staton Tucker. The Judge ruled in December that BlueBeat violated copyrights and presented unfair competition to the record labels.
