Satriani vs Coldplay: YouTube Comments Could Be Used in Court - A Top Story This Week

.
Satriani vs Coldplay: YouTube Comments Could Be Used in Court was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (MusicRadar) In the April 2009 issue of Entertainment Law & Finance, three partners in the Intellectual Property Group at Kilpatrick Stockton LLP have been musing over the Joe Satriani vs Coldplay copyright case. The US guitarist is suing Coldplay for infringing copyright, alleging the UK band's hit song Viva La Vida uses "substantial portions" of his own song If I Could Fly.

While the legal debate is somewhat dry, the article in EL&F is interesting stuff. The lawyers at Kilpatrick Stockton LLP says that: "Within days of the suit's initiation, YouTube was inundated with postings in which fans freely offered their opinions concerning the merits of Satriani's claims (or absence there-of). Some of these submissions were supported by surprisingly detailed analyses of the works."

While Satriani vs Coldplay may not go to trial for a variety of reasons, lawyers at Kilpatrick Stockton LLP think that YouTube analysis by fans and music teachers could well be used as evidence by either side in the case. - more on this story
