Reports are surfacing that Paul McCartney may be making an attempt to regain publishing rights to his Beatles songbook.

According to the always reliable British tabloids, Paul McCartney is making a stab at regaining the publishing rights to the Beatles songbook under U.S. copyright law.

The reports are claiming that copyright law for songs written before 1978, the rights go back to the songwriter after 56 years, so the early Beatles songs will be eligible to go back to Paul in five years, and he should get most, if not all of them back by 2026.

So far, Paul hasn't said anything, but it could be stemming from the anger he's been harboring for 30 years after Michael Jackson outbid Paul and bought the collection for $47.5 million dollars in the 1980's.
