Kerrang.com recoge la siguiente noticia:

BEATALLICA, the Internet sensation who combine the work of THE BEATLES with the sound of early METALLICA, have been slapped with a “cease-and-desist” order by THE BEATLES’ music publisher over their “unlwaful use” of the group’s compositions “without authorization or license.”

In the notice of willful copyright infringement, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, copyright owner and music publisher of “compositions written, individually and jointly, by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Richard Starkey” claims that BEATALLICA’s use of THE BEATLES’ compositions “without the express authorization or license has caused and continues to cause substantial and irreparable injury amd is in direct violation of Sony/ATV’s rights.”

When METALLICA frontman James Hetfield was asked last year by Kerrang! magazine if he’s ever heard BEATALLICA, he replied, “Yeah. I heard that. That was amazing. Someone put a lot of thought and talent into that man!” Asked if he was being sarcastic, he said, “No, not at all. I heard it online. It was about a year ago, or more. It was pretty amazing. It was pretty well thought out so I’m glad there’s people like that in the world to do that and it’s very entertaining for us, for sure!”

Me pregunto que abogado/ejecutivo mamarracho ha promovido esta medida. Porque hay que ser estúpido integral para creer que algo como Beatallica puede perjudicar de ninguna manera, ni a la música de los Beatles, ni al negocio generado por la misma. Más bien todo lo contrario. Pero bueno, como dijo el poeta:

“Tanto gilipollas y tan pocas balas.”
