Rock guitarist Joe Satriani has sued British band Coldplay, accusing the Grammy-nominated stars of plagiarizing one of his songs. Satriani’s copyright infringement suit, filed yesterday (Dec. 4) in Los Angeles federal court, claims the Coldplay song “Viva La Vida” incorporates “substantial original portions” of his 2004 instrumental “If I Could Fly.”
This argument comes down to is who you are a fan of - of course Coldplay fans arent going to accept that the songs are similar. And Satriani fans are going to be annoyed. Don’t have a go at me if this video upsets you. (Coldplay fans) Im not claiming Coldplay copied anyone, just putting the thought out there for people to talk about. YOU BE THE JUDGE - checks out the viddy.
Coldplay have recently been accused of copying ‘Songs I Didnt write’ by Creaky Boards on their new single Viva La Vida. The song is also similar, if not more so to Joe Satriani’s song ‘If I Could Fly’.
