In 1986, a Los Angeles judge ordered the producers of the Beatlemania stage show and movie to pay Apple Corps Limited, the Beatles' record and holding company, $10 million. The judge ruled the show's primary purpose was to commercially exploit the Beatles' popularity. Beatlemania featured four Beatle look-alikes who performed the group's biggest hits.
