Apple folklore has it that the Sosumi sound effect was a cheeky response to the Apple Computer vs. Apple Corps (the corporation of the Beatles) legal conflict in the 1990s. Originally it was called Let It Beep, but when somebody told the musician Jim Reeks that it wouldn’t get through Apple’s legal department, he changed it to Sosumi (a homophone to So Sue Me) and told the legal department that it was Japanese (Source: Mac Secrets, by Mark Hattersley, Wiley Publishing, Inc. 2011).
