A company representing one of The Beatles promoters for their New York Shea Stadium concerts is suing APple Corps Ltd and Subafilms Limited, claiming ownership of the rights to the Shea Stadium show.
 
The Beatles have used the footage in various projects over the years including in their new movie, The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years.
 
Billboard reports, that the man who died in 2013, filed a lawsuit against them.They are challenging the legality of a 1965 agreement made by Brian Epstein and Ed Sullivan Productions that gave Subafilms the copyright to the audio and video from the concert.
 

By reason of being the producer of and having made creative contributions to the 1965 Shea Stadium performance,” the suit reads, “as well as being the employer for hire of the Beatles and the opening acts, who performed at his instance and expense, Sid Bernstein was the dominant, and hence sole, author of the copyrightable work embodied in the Master Tapes, and the sole owner of all exclusive rights there in.”
