Did anyone notice at the iphone keynote?

Did anyone notice that at the iphone keynote that when Steve Jobs was demonstrating the ipod in the iphone that he played a Beatles song, isn't it illegal to get a Beatles album on a computer, let alone get it on a ipod, what was Steve thinking?

But I think it was a subtle way to show you can now buy the The Beatles on ITunes. I will have to go home and see.

Either that, or Steve just ripped his own CD.....which he owns.....and was playing it on his own Ipod.....which is legal....unless of course you are playing it for hundreds of people on a room.......and then distributing it via Quicktime to hundreds of thousands via Mmmmmmm.

the cd only grants you a license for personal listening. This would not be covered in playing it for an audience such as his. He would have had to have gotten a license agreement to play the song before he did that.
