Coldplay, no strangers to plagiarism accusations, are now being sued by guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, as the guitarist is accusing the band of ripping off his 2004 track “If I Could Fly” for their own Grammy-nominated hit “Viva La Vida.” Satriani filed a copyright infringement suit against the band in Los Angeles yesterday, accusing Coldplay of stealing “substantial original portions.”
Using one's material with permission is fine. Not getting permission is wrong. Period. Thumbs down for Coldplay. If we even get close to someone else's riff when we're writing songs we change it so there's never any question.
