Bitter Sweet Gesture : Rolling Stones grant full publishing rights to Bitter Sweet Symphony to The Verve

One of the marquee songs from The Verve (and of the Brit Pop era in general), Bitter Sweet Symphony, is a song with legal controversy. It was determined that the song was based on the Rolling Stones song The Last Time. The Verve had originally received permission to sample the song but were sued by the Rolling Stones manager claiming that they used more of the song than was agreed upon.
