It's interesting that there was never an issue over this while Sid Bernstein was alive.  Lawyers have descended on this like vultures on carrion just as the film is scheduled to reach theaters.  And they're claiming an "infringement" that occurred over twenty years ago with the airing and release of Anthology.  What next?!

The Beatles re-recorded most of the Shea concert in the studio as the sound recording was poor.  I wonder if the lawyers even know about that.

I'm curious to see how this plays out but I have no doubt that the plaintiff attorneys have no case here.

It seem they smell money and they wanted in on this I am wondering why they are  not going after Ron Howard and the movie Studio? The Beatles put all the time and money work to restoring it and now they want it back? Like Hello Goodbye said  it been over 20 yrs they could have done something then to secure the rights of the master tapes If the Beatles was infringing on their copyrighted  master tapes when they used it on Anthology  They should have taken care of it then not 20 years later on. Everyone knew that this footage was gong to be used and seen months ago they could have stopped it then

   
We don`t what agreements that Brain Epstein and the promoter had in  1965  they are both dead. Unless something in writhing exist they (The Beatles or  Sid Bernstein Presents )  had between them  I don`t think the Promoter reps  has a leg to stand on. This  footage has been shown on TV and the net for years  I think the Beatles took the time and money to restore it They should have legal clam and rights to the footage

I hate to see The Beatles  lose the case and end up buying the copyrights back. I don`t want everyone going to movies and waiting to see the 30 min concert and it get pulled due too the lawsuit I hope it works out for the group and the fans

It like they say in the Biz you cant buy this kind of promotion for a film     

The word for this GREED!

Here's the original recording of the Shea Stadium concert 15 August 1965...

I actually prefer listening to this rather than to what they re-recorded in the studio.  This is how it sounded that night.






Y'all better listen to this quick and download it if you can before them there lawyers find this.    ;)

Thanks for the update, Kagome.  I'm not going to be able to see Eight Days A Week in the theater but I'll watch it on Hulu when it's released there.

I saw Sir Paul at MetLife Stadium last month.  The sound was great and we also felt the stadium shake...

We even felt the heat from the flamethrowers during Live And Let Die...

Lucky you to have seen Sir Paul in concert too and to have met him in person!

I took my kid sister to see A Hard Day's Night twice in 1964.  I took her to the concert last month for her birthday.  That's her yelling "OKAY" and "YES" when Paul asked the audience to sing when he would indicate in the Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da video.  She acted the same way at the concert as she did in the movie theater.  But everyone in the stadium was acting that way, really.  :)

A change in plans...I'll not be watching the movie on Hulu.  I pre-ordered it on Amazon.  I can wait till November.  I didn't want to do the Hulu free-trial thing.  But I'm looking forward to reviews from those members here who see it during its initial release.

I have an old bootleg DVD of the 1965 Shea concert.  I'm happy with that.

'Apple' can be Apple after...erm...'Apple.'

George can get sued over the debatable copying of 'He's So Fine' for 'My Sweet Lord," and yet the absolute/no question/who could possibly doubt it? carbon-copy of 'Taxman'/'Start' (The Jam) is apparently alright!

Incredible really.
