"Joe Satriani's lawsuit against Coldplay has been dismissed from court, according to reports. The legendary guitarist had previously claimed that Chris Martin and co ripped-off his 2004 song "If I Could Fly" for their 2008 single "Viva La Vida". A jury trial was expected to take place following the legal challenge, which was issued in December. However, international news sites are now claiming that the California Central District Court have decided against pursuing with the prosecution. This suggests that an out-of-court financial settlement may have been reached by both parties with Judge Dean Pregerson." [Yahoo News]
