Hey-Ho,Let's Sue(Ex-Ramones Drummer sues Wal-Mart,Apple)

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- A former drummer of the iconic punk rock band The Ramones sued Wal-Mart Stores Inc. on Friday, alleging copyright infringement over digital downloads of the band's songs.
Richard Reinhardt, who performed under the name Richie Ramone, filed his lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan, which also names Ramones Productions Inc. and the estate of the band's late lead singer John Cummings, who performed as Johnny Ramone.
Reinhardt claims he is the author of six Ramones songs - "Smash You," "Somebody Put Something In My Drink," "Human Kind," "I'm Not Jesus," "I Know Better Now" and "(You) Can't Say Anything Nice."
"Significantly, Richie has never licensed or authorized the use of the compositions in any digital formats," the lawsuit says.
Reinhardt, who now lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., was the band's drummer from 1983 to 1987 while Marky Ramone was on hiatus, according to the band's Web site.
The lawsuit claims Reinhardt has suffered at least $900,000 in damages as a result of the alleged infringement.
Spokespersons at Wal-Mart, Real Networks and Apple all declined comments.
