Coldplay Accused of Stealing Cheese! Again!



Either Coldplay has decided to tackle plagiarism with the dedication and diligence of a Harvard student, or the band has become the pinata du jour for musicians seeking money for their own, less popular songs: yet another artist has sued the band, claiming copyright infringement. In his suit, musician Sammie Lee Smith claims that the band stole three of the 4,000 tunes he has penned in his lifetime, specifically "Yellow," "Clocks," and "Trouble." Despite the fact that these tracks were released TEN YEARS AGO, Smith is just now bringing his suit to court, asking the band to stop playing "his" hits (and probably asking for a ton of money). He has yet to file any suit regarding the theft of any of his other 3,997 songs.
