BEEF: COLDPLAY VS JOE SATRIANI

Coldplay were in Los Angeles federal court this week, where they denied plagiarizing their hit “Viva La Vida” off of Joe Satriani’s track “If I Could Fly.”   According to the Associated Press, the band is being sued by Satriani for copyright infringement.   Coldplay claims the guitarist’s track “lacks originality.” A lawyer for Satriani says the band’s response is typical in these kinds of cases and thought the matter could have been resolved outside of court.
