Good Ol' coldplay
Taken from Ultimate-guitar.com :
Coldplay is being sued by a man who calls himself a "well-talented" yet "unknown" songwriter. The man claims the band straight up jacked three of the nearly 4,000 songs he's written in his lifetime, reports TMZ.com.
Sammie Lee Smith filed a lawsuit against the UK indie band yesterday (January 13) in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging that they stole his songs "Yellow", "Clocks" and "Trouble".
In the lawsuit, Sammie claims since 1976, he has "recorded approximately 100 tapes, each tape containing approximately 40 songs." Sammie does not say if any of his other 3,997 songs were ever stolen by anyone.
As obtained by TMZ, Smith states that he wants Coldplay to stop performing the tracks live.
This isn't the first lawsuit the band have faced - last year Joe Satriani filed for copyright infringement when he claimed the group had used elements of his song "If I Could Fly".
Haha anyone's thoughts and comments? haha
