Joe Satriani: coldplay says satriani's song lacks originality!

News:
07-04-2009:

I don't know what you make of this... but it adds insult to injury IMHO!

Billboard published:
Coldplay has denied in federal court that it copied parts of Joe Satriani's music for its hit song, "Viva La Vida."

In a response filed in Los Angeles on Monday, attorneys for Coldplay's band members also argued that any similarities between "Viva La Vida" and Satriani's "If I Could Fly" weren't enough to warrant damages.

Satriani's song "lacks originality," Coldplay's response claims, and shouldn't receive copyright protection.
