Beatles Downloads–Pulled from the Internet

It was, of course, too good to be true.

Yesterday we were thrilled with the exciting news that Norwegian broadcaster NRK had legally released Beatles songs for download. Today our shoulders are shrugged and all we can say is, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

NRK  has had to pull its archive of 212 legal MP3s from their site. From BoingBoing, the reason is as follows:

Our new agreement with rights holder TONO gives us rights to publish radio and TV shows we aired a long time ago. But the agreement NRK has with rights holders IFPI and FONO only allows us to publish shows that has been aired the last four weeks. And since “Our daily Beatles” was aired in 2007, we have to pull it from the podcast .”

FOILED yet again!
