McCartney Sues To Regain Rights to his Songs

It has always stuck in Sir Paul's craw that he doesn't own the rights to the Beatles songs. He never has.

At first they were owned by the band's publishing company. Then they were bought by Michael Jackson. Then Jackson sold them to Sony.

Paul has been filing suits and trying to get his hands on his songs ever since, but this latest gambit is probably his strongest. The Hollywood Reporter has the details.

Let the man have his songs! He (co)wrote them for Heaven's sake.
