Joe Satriani Accuses Coldplay Of Plagiarism

This summer Creaky Boards took to the internet and claimed of having written a preexisting song ridiculously similar to Coldplay's "Viva La Vida."

According to Reuters, Joe Satriani’s newest allegation on the UK band stealing his song is a little more legal and for good reason…

Satriani's copyright infringement suit, filed on Thursday in Los Angeles federal court, claims the Coldplay song "Viva La Vida" incorporates "substantial original portions" of his 2004 instrumental "If I Could Fly."

The 52-year-old guitar virtuoso is seeking a jury trial, damages and "any and all profits" attributable to the alleged copyright infringement.

To prove an allegation of musical plagiarism, Satriani must demonstrate that Coldplay had access to his work, and that Coldplay's composition is substantially.

You be the judge…
