EMI Says iTunes Beatles Exclusive Not Short Term
Following the announcement this morning that The Beatles EMI catalog was available on iTune's as digital downloads for the first time, I asked EMI when we could expect to see The Beatles to also be available via Amazon and other digital retailers. Apparently, the answer is not anytime soon.
The Beatles are "exclusive with iTunes into 2011," an EMI spokesperson told Hypebot this morning. That leaves Jobs & CO the sole beneficiary of any Beatles Christmas sales bump. Score another victory for Cupertino.
