Muse Accused Of Stealing Rock Opera

(Classic Rock) Muse are the subject of a $3.5m lawsuit launched by a songwriter who alleges Matt Bellamy's band "ripped off" his idea for their 2009 three-part piece Exogenesis.

Charles Bolfrass last week filed papers in Manhattan Federal Court accusing Muse and their label Warner Brothers of copyright infringement, unfair trade practices and unfair competition.

Bolfrass says he wrote a "cinematic science-fiction rock opera" called Exogenesis. Its subject was the demise of planet Earth and the resulting spread of the human race through space as they seek new homes.
