Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) Computer will return to London’s High Court today to contest the latest lawsuit brought by Beatles managing company Apple Corps. The Beatles company says that iTunes online music store breaches a 1991 agreement forbidding the computer maker from using the trademark for any works “whose principal content is music and, or performances.”

The Beatles’ lawyers will argue in a two to three day hearing that the case should be heard in London. The computer maker’s lawyers contest this and have asked a Californian judge for the case to proceed in San Jose.
