It's not about money but the principle of the thing! why should those a$$ wipes from cold play get a grammy or a nomination on something they stole...?!? I'd be fumming too if someone had stolen my music and got undeserved acknowledgement!Joe is a nice dude. That's why I'm surprised to hear of this sue. I just strikes me as kind of a childish thing.
It can't be about money, so what is it about?
I own a candle/bath and body company and we make everything ourselves. About five years ago we named a scent "Krispy Kreme Doughnut" because that's what we thought it smelled like. Within 2/3 months we were contacted by their attorneys with a cease and desist order for using their trademarked name. We were also told that any variation (Crispy Creme-Crisped Cream-Crisp and Creamy) would result in legal action. Due to the alleged relation to their products and trademarks. We weren't even making a dent in their monetary bottom line, but business is business. They weren't interested in licensing the name to us, so we changed it to Fresh Glazed Doughnut. I was surprised they even found us because at that point we were relatively small compared to what was going on globally candle wise.That does make sense in a way, DT666. But I dunno... I mean, I think that Joe doesn't have to sue Coldplay for money concerns. I don't think the presence of the Coldplay song will negatively affect sales of his works in any way. So I don't see the point of sueing, really.
