iTunes won't be the exclusive online vendor of tracks from The Beatles when they are made available online, a report claims.

According to Fox News, 13 of the band's original albums have been remastered for an online release "soon". Songs from the Liverpudlian act will be released through several services, not just iTunes.

Apple Corps head Neil Aspinall said the online releases "will be on all the services, not just one”.

The report also claims that the Beatles are being paid a royalty on every iTunes song or iPod sold as part of the deal between Apple Inc and Apple Corps over use of the Apple trademark.

Fox News doesn't cite any attribution for these claims and neither company described any specific terms to the deal when it was announced last week.
