Joe Satriani claims Coldplay ripped him off. Satriani has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Coldplay over their song "Viva La Vida." Satriani claims it copies his 2004 song, "If I Could Fly." Satriani is asking a federal judge to order an accounting so he can determine how much money he may be owed, or else have the band stop using the song. Coldplay's representatives have not returned calls for comment.
