Nice. The 1976 law. I see MPL is quickly updating it accordingly https://www.mplcommunications.com/music-search
'Can't Buy Me Love' should be up next.
As side note: 'Love Me Do' and 'P.S. I Love You' were never part of the ATV-deal, and MPL already owned those. I think 'Please Please Me' and 'Ask Me Why' were also part of some other deal.
Love Me Do and PS I Love You were owned by Ardmore Beechwood, later, Beechwood Music, both owned by EMI. MPL owned the copyrights since 1978.
Please Please Me, Ask Me Why: Richard James (not allowed to say the D-word) Music owned by Universal Music.
Lenono (Yoko, Julian and Sean) owned some of the early Lennon/McCartney songs because of John Lennon's death, before McCartney received ownership after 2018 of songs other than Love Me Do and PS I Love You.
other involvements were Gil Music, Duchess Music (Universal), Metric Music, UnArt Music (United Artists Music owned by EMI) and Len-Mac Enterprise. The EMI ownership is Sony/ATV since 2009 after Michael Jackson's passing.
I'm waiting for ownership of "Yesterday." 14% is rubbish.
Is Julian Lennon part of LENONO?
This says it's owned by John & Yoko, but since his death she inherited it and of course it will go to Sean when she dies. I doubt Julian will get a dime.
Julian is mentioned as a copyright holder in the earlier Lennon McCartney songs decades before Paul started owning songs like "Please Please Me."
