Pound Struggles To Recover In After Shock British Vote

The pound struggled on Monday to bounce back from last week’s sharp losses triggered by a shock British election result that has thrown the country into uncertainty. Sterling took a beating on Friday after Prime Minister Theresa May’s ruling Conservative Party lost its Westminster majority, days before it starts crunch talks with the EU on exiting the bloc.

McCartney Sues Sony For Beatles Rights

McCartney Files Lawsuit Against Sony/ATV

Paul McCartney says he wants his music to get back to where it once belonged. McCartney filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan on Wednesday against Sony/ATV over copyright ownership of the many hit songs he wrote with John Lennon as part of The Beatles.

The first song eligible to be claimed back is Love Me Do, in October 2018. The rest of the catalogue would follow in years after, ending in 2026. McCartney wants a ruling to say his c...
