But the fact was he was up for renegotiations with Capitol, they desperatley wanted to keep him, so he negotiated a larger royalty for himself for all the Beatles records.
He was totally within his rights to do so. And like he said it wasn't like they were actually a band anymore.
What you are saying seems to make sense. I suppose the others (well, at least George because Ringo in terms of royalties surely did not get much anyway??) could also have re-negotiated with Capitol, had they chosen to. Only that probably Macca, due to his commercial success, was in the best position to do so.
