Apple is now the owner of The Beatles' Apple Corps logo, reports PatentlyApple.

On 5 February 2007, Apple Inc. and Apple Corps announced a settlement of their trademark dispute under which Apple Inc. would own all of the trademarks related to "Apple" and would license certain of those trademarks back to Apple Corps for their continued use. The settlement ended the ongoing trademark lawsuit between the companies, with each party bearing its own legal costs, and Apple Inc. would continue using its name and logos on iTunes.

While settlement terms were confidential, it was said that Apple was paying The Beatles $500 million for its trademark rights.

Now a registration for the Apple Corps logo has been granted to Apple. The Canadian Intellectual Property Office shows that the company was granted a trademark for the logo on October 24th. There was an unsuccessful opposition from a company named Apple Box Productions Sub Inc. Apple first filed for the trademark in March 2011.
