A number of evidences point to the likelihood that Apple will announce The Beatles catalogue on iTunes during its annual iPod event on Sep 9:
* the Apple event is titled “It’s only rock and roll, but we like it”
* The Beatles is releasing its entire catalogue remastered on Sep 9
* The new game The Beatles:Rock Band will release on Sep 9
* and Yoko Ono told Sky News that Apple will announce The Beatles in the iTunes Music Store in the Sep 9 event. But the news was shortly removed by Sky News.
But shortly after the Sky News leak, EMI’s global catalog president Ernesto Schmitt is on record claiming that the Fab Four’s catalogue will not be available on iTunes on Sep 9, although the company is in talks with Apple to make it happen.
