LET IT BE: The Beatles have been a bit slow to come to the download market, and that's probably because they reckon their music is worth a bit more than anyone else's. It's not, of course, but they like to put tickets on themselves. In fact, they've now decided to offer an exclusive on the Apple catalogue - if you want to sell the Beatles, it'll cost you fifteen million dollars for a six-month window. Working on these figures, Undercover calculate it would need the lucky purchaser to shift 375 million tracks to break even - in other words, you'd need to be having about twenty-four tracks being downloaded every second before you could even start to dream of paying off the fee.

But after all, Yoko and Paul really need the cash.
