Apple has secured exclusive digital rights for The Beatles’ catalog into next year, according to AllThingsD. EMI spokesman Dylan Jones told the publication that Apple has exclusive digital rights for The Beatles “into 2011,” and noted that the exclusive does not expire at the first of the year. Jones added that the exclusivity period does have a set expiration date, but did not share when that might be. In addition, Jones was vague when asked whether The Beatles would be available from other digital outlets such as Amazon and various subscription services, saying only “[t]hat’s a question, isn’t it.”
