Northern Songs Ltd was a limited company founded in 1963, by music publisher Dick James, Brian Epstein, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, to publish songs written by Lennon and McCartney, as well as songs written by George Harrison and Ringo Starr, who were all members of the Beatles. Their producer, George Martin, was offered a stake in the company but turned it down, as he believed that his position at EMI made it a potential conflict of interest. In 1965, it was decided to make Northern Songs a public company, to save on capital gains tax.

dbo:abstract
  • Northern Songs est une maison de disques britannique fondée en 1963 par le producteur de musique Dick James, Brian Epstein et par Les Beatles. Elle publie les chansons des Beatles. Dans les années 1960, Northern Songs était détenu à 51 %, soit la majorité des parts, par Brian Epstein à travers sa société NEMS. Il disparait en 1967. Sa famille, et Dick James, administrateur de Northern Songs depuis les débuts en 1963, décident de vendre à l'empire ATV, en 1969, sans que les Beatles ne puissent rien faire, ce qui sera pour eux un déboire participant à l'ambiance délétère menant à leur dissolution en 1970. Ce catalogue détenu par ATV est racheté par Michael Jackson pour 47,5 millions de dollars en 1985. Sa valeur serait aujourd'hui de plus d'un milliard de dollars. (fr)

Después de la muerte de Epstein en 1967, Lennon y McCartney se habían propuesto renegociar su contrato con James, pero en 1969 James vendió los derechos de Northern Songs a la compañía británica Associated Television sin avisar a los miembros de The Beatles. Después de variados pleitos legales (entre los que incluso el músico estadounidense Michael Jackson resultó involucrado, al comprar los derechos de Northern Songs y después venderlos a Sony Music) la compañía se disolvió en 1995.

Their producer, George Martin, was offered a stake in the company but turned it down, as he believed that his position at EMI made it a potential conflict of interest. In 1965, it was decided to make Northern Songs a public company, to save on capital gains tax. After Epstein died in 1967, Lennon and McCartney sought to renegotiate their publishing deal with James, but early in 1969 James and his partner sold their shares in Northern Songs to Britain's Associated Television (ATV), giving no warning to the four Beatles and their record company, Apple Corps. Lennon and McCartney attempted to gain ownership of the publishing rights, but their bid to gain control failed, as the financial power of Lew Grade ensured that Northern Songs passed into the control of ATV. Allen Klein (then de facto Beatles' manager) attempted to set up a deal for Apple Corps to buy out ATV, but this also failed. McCartney once informed Michael Jackson about the financial value of music publishing, as Jackson had enquired about the process of acquiring songs and how songs were used. According to McCartney, Jackson then said, "I'm going to get yours [Beatles' songs]". Northern Songs was later purchased by Jackson, although both McCartney and Yoko Ono, Lennon's widow, were notified of the sale, but did not bid themselves. Jackson later merged his published catalogue with Sony Corporation of America's to form Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Northern Songs was dissolved in 1995 after the merger, and is now a part of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. (en)
