Coldplay copyright case 'settled'; BBC News, 9/16/09

BBC News; Coldplay copyright case 'settled':

"Coldplay and Joe Satriani have reached an agreement over a court case alleging they copied parts of one his songs, according to reports.

The guitarist sued the band last year saying they used "substantial, original portions" of his 2004 song If I Could Fly on their track Viva La Vida.

Billboard magazine said he had dropped the case and that Coldplay would not be required to admit wrongdoing...

It is not clear whether a financial settlement was reached."
