It's not going to fly. psychoacoustic is made up of 1 and 0... which in the end is atom. Music is also made up of atom. So they are all the same. They don't have permission to sell.

Aren't atoms patented by Gene Simmons already?

Bluebeats.com's lawyer is reportedly basing the site's defense on "psychoacoustic simulation," an "arcane" technology that supposedly produces music enables it to sell music that sounds identical to recordings without actually infringing on any copyrights.
Images can be manipulated to a certain extent to no longer be considered infringing on a copyright. Therefore, the same should apply to music. Of course, unless they changed the lyrics somewhat, it doesn't really matter what it sounds like. Music is a complex beast. There's the actual performance (the guitar riffs, drum solos, vocal talent) that are aural pieces of work (like a painting is visual), but then the lyrics themselves are protected like a book.

It will be interesting to see the outcome of this, asusming the judge isn't just a Beatles fan and instantly rules in Apple Corp's favor.

Bluebeats is insane if they think they can sell Sony properties to the general public. What a dumb idea, especailly using one of the largest rock and roll names that ever existed in the industry. Plus at a time like this after MJ has passed away and Sony is losing all kinds of money on their failing PS3 platform. This is not a time to try to dicker with Sony corporation.
