EVERY TIME THEY FLOG A PAIR OF JEANS, RONNIE SPECTOR DON'T GET A CENT: The New York Court of Appeal has decided that The Ronettes don't have any right to get cash when their music is played under adverts or in movies, because the contract in which they sold all their rights forever to Phil Spector for a measely USD14,000 didn't make any mention of them. The band had won USD3m in a lower court, which now Phil gets to keep and spend on making records with Starsailor, which might be seen as some sort of justice anyway.
