Round Hill Music has purchased the U.S. rights to six of the Beatles' earliest songs, marking the first time in nearly fifty years that ownership of the song rights will change hands.

The company has bought a portfolio of copyrights which includes the tunes "She Loves You," "From Me To You," and "I Saw Her Standing There," "Misery," "There's a Place," and "I Wanna Be Your Man" (which was also performed by the Rolling Stones). The catalog of copyrights—purchased from Adage Classics—also includes songs such as "Come Go with Me" by the Del-Vikings and "100 Pounds of Clay" by Gene McDaniel.

Josh Gruss, CEO and Founder of Round Hill Music, explained: "Our focus at Round Hill Music is to acquire and manage iconic music, and it doesn't get more iconic than the Beatles. [. . .] Our team will provide the attention, stewardship and a high level of service that wonderful music like this deserves."
