Have you followed the long drawn out battle of The Verve’s song Bitter Sweet Symphony?  Well Richard Ashcroft, of The Verve, had to sign away the publishing rights to the song since it included part of the Rolling Stones song “The Last Time”.  Billboard estimates the song has earned about $5 million.  The only money Ashcroft has received was $1,000. Well Mick Jagger and Keith Richards finally agreed to give Richard back his song and now he can earn the songwriters royalties.
