Satriani sues Coldplay for copying his song If I could Fly and turning it into Viva La Vida. What do U guys think about this?
I think this is a done deal. How did coldplay think they would get away with this?

It's possible that the melody and chord progression is purely coincidence. But Satch probably has a case if music copyrights mean anything. I don't think that makes him a bad guy. Parts of both tunes are very similar.

Wrong. Coldplay aren't hacks, they are serious musicians, and honestly, I think satch is a little too sensitive about this, That's a common chord progression, very easy for the songs to sound similiar. honestly, ive lost some respect for Satch from this, i mean, he's coming off as a little sore, maybe because coldplay sells out arenas and he doesent?
Regardless, both satch and coldplay write great songs, and i wish they would just let this go. Its not doing anyone any favors.

That's quite a bold claim coming from someone who doesn't know these guys. Maybe they are, but lets refrain from jumping to conclusions. Like them or not, Coldplay are accomplished musicians in their own right.

I wouldn't say I've lost respect for Satch, but I do think its an overreaction. It might well be his management making this decision, anyone know?

Yes! I´ve been waiting for this. Every time I hear the coldplay song I get a little angry because they are getting cred for joes work.

I'd say they are very more than inspired by him..
Maybe they should have done what all others do.. Ask him first if they can "borrow" the melody on legal copyright..

IMO the concept is great: with such "scandal" they both get as much promotion that they can even forget about the cost of the suit. Coz Satch is not going to be a less wonderful musician by making a fuss about it and Coldplay will keep on filling concert halls all over the world even after this issue.

Same melody, different context. I And its not fair to compare the Satch and Coldplay. I'll continue to listen to both without any loss of respect. Since melodies do not belong to anyone and you can't possess a chord progression. This is about industry and money.

This is interesting - makes me think... What if you or me happen to write something which sounds like someone else's song, and if you then get sued..?! unsure.gif

Better stop writing music ph34r.gif

Or what if Paul Gilbert sues me for a pattern I thought invented ph34r.gif

Oh I forgot, no one will sue you unless you make millions of dollars from the song, we're safe mellow.gif

That's gonna be a good publicity for Satch. That's all he's after winning or not. That's what I think
