Did Coldplay commit copyright infringement in Viva la Vida? — video analysis

Joe Satriani v. Coldplay [lawsuit just filed]

Creaky Boards v. Coldplay

Analysis: My guess: Coldplay settles! I wonder if Coldplay can still win the Grammy for “Viva la Vida,” with all these copyright infringement allegations swirling?

    Well this is pop music which typically relies on only a couple of chords and all consonant melody notes. I don’t think anyone could claim to be the owner or original author of a chord progression. II-V-I comes in almost any (jazz) tune, a blues is written within the saem 12 bar structure over and over again.
    And anyway: the good things belong to mankind and not to a greedy few.
    Lawyers are the winners here.
