Coldplay Rips Off(Allegedly) Small Brooklyn Band Called "Creaky Boards"???

Creaky Boards released their song in 2007 before Coldplays' "Vida La Vida", which was released in 2008:


One problem for Creaky Boards and Coldplay though, Joe Satriani released his instrumental, "If I Could Fly" in 2004. Whoops.


Why is this of note? This could turn into a nasty lawsuit with millions of dollars at stake. Just ask the Verve what happened when they sampled, "too much," of a Rolling Stones song, even though the Verve had been given permission ahead of releasing "Bittersweat Symphony" to sample part of the Stones song, "The Last Time".
