Why KISS Opted Not To Sue Bruce Springsteen Over Song was a top story on Monday: While copyright infringement lawsuits are rather common, even for songs stretching back decades like Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven", Gene Simmons explained in a recent interview why KISS decided not to take legal action against Bruce Springsteen over a song that was similar to one of their biggest hits.

Some have found similarities between Springsteen's song "Outlaw Pete" which was released in 2009 and KISS's hit song from 1979 "I Was Made For Loving You" and Gene says that they didn't sue because they like the Boss.

"KISS have sued lots of people and won," Simmons told The Guardian (via UCR). "But some people we don't sue. We didn't sue Bruce Springsteen for 'Outlaw Pete.' How do we decide who to sue and who not to? We like Springsteen. We don't sue." Read more - here.
