I know my threads in the Arts & Entertainment section are seen as slightly obnoxious/dogmatic, but trust me, I'm trying to change my opinionated ways when it comes to this subject, so don't click away from this thread immediately. And plus, this isn't one of those kind of themed threads, anyway.
Anywho, the other day I was taking a look at the ol' google news and I couldn't help but notice that the entire Beatles catalog had been remastered and released by EMI. I don't know about you, but to me this translates as sort of a money-making move on EMI's part. I mean, they've done this with countless other artists and it's just getting slightly annoying I think. They'll release a 10+ year old album(s) by an artist that they were formerly contracted with (I find it interesting that almost every major artist who has ever signed with EMI has had some sort of falling out with them), seemingly for pure moneys sake.
I understand that you can argue that EMI is simply trying to remaster and repackage the music for listeners who may not own the album/younger listeners who are interested in the Beatles catalog (which EMI of course wants them to buy legally), but to me it's sounds kind of... well... fishy.
