    Oh how interesting. I did not know that, but it makes sense. Thanks for the info.

    Interestingly, neither Yoko Ono or any of the Beatles have any say in what their music is used for, because they do not own the rights to their music. They signed away publishing rights when they were younger and trying to avoid hefty taxes and then Michael Jackson bought the rights to more than half the Beatles catalog of music, as well as music of other artists like Eminem, Bob Dylan, Elvis. It was only after he passed that the executors of his estate granted licensing rights to use those songs, such as "The Long and Winding Road" for a car commercial, Cirque du Soleil, etc., since part of their job is to see that the estate is protected and grows.
    I think I read somewhere that Paul McCartney was a bit miffed when Michael Jackson bought the rights to the Beatles catalog. I think he had told MJ that would be a nice way to make some money but did not expect him to buy rights to the Beatles' music. My memory is pretty fuzzy on that sort of thing, however.

    You are right that it is not always the original songwriter who has the publishing rights to the music. A primer from a couple of years ago: http://alterandkendrick.com/protecting-your-musical-copyrights/what-are-music-publishing-rights/

    Line Haddad asked me to remove one of her program I uploaded on YT. I agree the quality wasn't the best but it's nowhere else. She said she would latter add it herself.
