Coldplay Vs Satriani

Chris Martin claimed he wrote it and Joe Satriani claimed he wrote it - either way a decision has been made over whether Coldplay’s song ‘Viva La Vida’ plagiarized Satriani’s song ‘If I Could Fly’.

The case, which saw an axe-wielding Satriani sueing Coldplay in December for plagiarism has been dismissed from court. According to news reports, the dismissal at the California Central District Court was reached “upon stipulation”. It is not know whether an out-of-court settlement had been reached.

Coldplay continue their UK tour at Hampden Park, Glasgow tonight (16 Sept) before heading to Wembley Stadium on Friday (18) and Saturday (19). Satriani? Does anyone care?
