Darn, no link, but can someone confirm this?

McCARTNEY WON'T BUY BEATLE RIGHTS

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY has slammed rumours he will take advantage of MICHAEL JACKSON's financial troubles to make a low offer for THE BEATLES song rights - because he will get them anyway.

Reports of Jackson's dwindling financial prospects prompted speculation McCartney would buy back rights to his classic songs like YESTERDAY, but the rocker revealed a legality means the songs will soon be his anyway.

And the superstar stresses his one time feud with Jackson is over because he is too happy to be angry with the fallen pop king.

He says, "I don't think so. I've had people talk to me who are more concerned for me than I am about it. But the interesting thing is, there are actually things in the whole deal that actually revert to me anyway.

"There are years approaching, there are date approaching, that we never thought would approach, where things revert to me. So really, it's a waiting game rather than a big proactive buying game.

"Which suits my personality: just hang on, be patient, it's cool. Don't get your knickers in a twist."

Hmmm, I wonder what that's all about. At least he will be getting the song rights, anyway, which is the most important thing.
Hey--- crazy thought, but do you think it might have anything to do with his 64th birthday? Or maybe that's just me being weird. Anyway...

I think it might have something to do with 40 year time limits on copyright - anyone got any other ideas?

Nah, that sounds about right Al...Unless a fixed agreed time limit of ownership was struck up by the Llawyers.

Well, that should mean songs from 1965 and earlier should already be his.

Yeah, that makes more sense than what I came up with. Honestly, some if the things that pop into my head... ::)
