Paul McCartney has waited almost 30 years to Get Back the copyrights to songs he wrote for The Beatles.
Now, only FIVE more years to Let It Be, and the whole debacle will be Yesterday.
Much of The Beatles catalogue has been owned by Michael Jackson, now his estate, posthumously, since 1985, when the King of Pop reportedly paid $47.5 million for the Associated Television Corporation’s back catalog, which held hundreds of Beatles songs.
So not only has Paul been unable to cash in on his musical GENIUS for decades now, he has had to PAY MJ any time he wants to play a song he wrote!
