LONDON -- Paul McCartney may be looking to seal a deal with Sony that would make the catalogue of 250-plus  Beatles hits belong to him. Some say the music is worth more than $1 billion.

The rock legend has reportedly wanted the rights for about 30 years. At this point, Sony owns half and Michael Jackson's estate does too.
