I would imagine that the living members of the Beatles still own the copyrights to their songs which is why you don't get a flood of Beatles covers. If they are releasing this song (whoever the fuck they are) then they will have had permission I would have thought from Ringo Bingo Bango and McCuntney.
Michael Jackson bought them then sold them on for a vast profit.
Mcartney was offered the rights to them at much less than Jackson paid but refused to because he didn't see why he should pay for the rights to his own songs. So when Jackson sold them on for huge profit and now the hapless scouser has little control over them he must feel a right tit.( can't remember who to though )
NOW what song have Sam and Mark covered whoever they are?
He's alright, McCartney, I suppose. I hate his fucking turgid music but he did at least sent his kids to the local comprehensive, despite supposedly being Britain's richest man at the time, and he also bought up swathes of the countryside so that he could prevent foxhunting there. But then again, whenever he comes across some poor sod recording one of his shows, he goes and sues them for thousands and thousands of pounds ???
Guess he's just a regular, flawed millionaire like the rest of us
