why would Apple NEED to transfer the rights? All they need to do is acquire Beats as a wholly owned subsidiary.  Leave the Beat brand alone and pull the puppet strings in their favor. 
  What does music online service have to do with a company who started off building headphones (HW)? Nothing, right? Well, bam.. out of nowhere a Headphones (HW) company get into the music services ("Cloud" w/ client SW development) business. There is obviously more to Beats than a bunch of guys who want to compete in headphones biz.   We have no idea what Beats showed Apple to justify such a high price, was it just what we have seen thus for or did they show them...
USA Today has confirmed through their own sources that this is not a rumor. http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2014/05/08/report-apple-to-acquire-beats/8868913/
woah
Dan, Google denied scanning for ads. in  Sept. 2013.  Unlike Microsoft who clealyr says they do not scan for ads in this same article.      http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2013/09/05/google-seeks-to-dismiss-gmail-privacy-lawsuit-says-it-has-right-to-scan/   7 months later Google admitted it does in fact scan to target ads at you, and says it has updated privacy notice accordly....
Dan,explain why they would scan your gmail account? when they have openly said in court that they do and why they do this.  
You are correct when it comes to purely "anonymous" people who use anonymous services such as "Google search", if you can keep your browser from using cookies.  However, there are services which are not anonymous and don't use any cookies, but are linked to direct google accounts before they will work like Google Mail, G+, Google Glass, Google Android, etc etc.   All of these generate revenue by collecting your personel user information and all communications you have with...
Google has nothing to sell except your information and other cloud services.. It does not make Ads. It sells your information to people who make Ads and places their ads in front of people on the internet.   That is why it is an Internet "information provider". It provides your information to others (anyone who will pay them, no questions asked, including spammers, scammers and other criminals). From Google's point of view, you are not the customer, you are their product...
If I am an investor picking the one that is Winning and being right, is completely meaningful.    Meaningful all the way to the bank.   Knowing when to get out before it is obvious that it is "Losing" is just as meaningful.    Where a company is 10, 20, 100, 300, 500 years from now. I could care less. Thus meaningless.
pretty sure this means,   revenue is less meaningful when compared to profit/loss. If we look at the US Internal Revenue Service and the Government as a single "company" if you will.  In 2012, the IRS generated $2.5 trillion of revenue. I ask you to look at the US balance sheet and tell me they are "Winning" when you compare it to the debt. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_tax_revenue_by_state
