Coldplay Song Theft Case Dropped

(Nightwatcher) Guitar hero Joe Satriani and British pop-rock band Coldplay have settled their legal entanglements and the guitarist's lawsuit alleging copyright infringement has been dismissed, Satriani's representative confirmed to Billboard today.

While details of the case remain sealed, legal sources said a financial settlement between the two parties may have been reached. Coldplay will not be required to admit to any wrongdoing.

Last December, Satriani filed a lawsuit against the members of Coldplay and their Capitol Records label, alleging the band's song, "Viva La Vida," contained "substantial, original portions" of his 2004 track "If I Could Fly." - more on this story
