ColdPlay: We’ll Steal From Anyone

Coldplay Sued Previously For Plagiarism

…Steals Again

Coldplay

This is a follow up to yesterday’s article ColdPlay Accused Of Ripping Off Indie Band the Creaky Boards. Today, an article was posted on another site where Coldplay’s front man Chris Martin incriminatingly said and I quote:

“We’re one of the world’s worst—but most enthusiastic—plagiarists as a band. We’ll try and copy anything but tend to fail, so we come up with something…that sounds like us—only through trying to sound like somebody else.”

Coldplay

After reading that quote, it’s clear you and your wife Gwyneth Paltrow have been hanging around Madonna too much. Unless you plan on bribing a judge if the Creaky Boards sue you, it’s time for you to shut up.

You just ripped off an indie band, which is pathetic coming from a major label act, using their music and melody without permission, for a CD that is going to debuted next week with roughly 650,000 copies sold, according to Hits Daily Double. That’s called big damages.

Apparently, Coldplay has done this before. They were sued by a Dutch Guitarist named Peter Van Houten for stealing his music for use in their previous track “Clocks.” Clearly, Coldplay has a problem with this.

The Creaky Boards

While, today they denied stealing the Creaky Board’s tune “The Songs I Didn’t Write” for use in their track “Viva La Vida” stating they’d “demoed it in March 2007” there’s no proof of that. People don’t even know what you demoed. Where’s the copyright certificate.

Anyone can say they recorded something first, but where’s the proof. You do know that most recordable media has serial numbers that show when it was issued. Furthermore, any re-recording over older media will show up as tampering upon proper inspection.

Sidebar: Why are you acting crazy in your interviews, Mr. Martin. You’re walking out on journalists and saying very strange things that they are relaying to the public. What’s happened to you. What’s Paltrow done to you.

Coldplay: “We’ll Try and Copy Anyone”

Whoops. Just as his band is accused of ripping off someone else’s song, Coldplay’s Chris Martin says in an interview that he and his bandmates are “the world’s worst—but most enthusiastic—plagiarists. We’ll try and copy anyone.” …

We’re guessing he—and the band’s lawyers—are probably wishing he’d said just that instead. Martin says:

“We’re one of the world’s worst—but most enthusiastic—plagiarists as a band. We’ll try and copy anything but tend to fail, so we come up with something…that sounds like us—only through trying to sound like somebody else.”

Elderly Dutch Musician Accuses Coldplay Of Plagiarism

Dutch Guitarist Peter Van Houten (alias Peter Van Wood) has accused Coldplay of plagiarism, in respect of the song ‘Clocks’.

The guitarist, who has lived in Italy for several years, is looking for a million Euros from the British band due to plagiarism. According to 83 year old Van Wood, Coldplay’s 2002 single ‘Clocks’ is identical to his song ‘Caviar & Champagne’ which he wrote in 1982. Meanwhile Van Wood has called in a lawyer and seems to have the support of most of the callers to Italian Broadcaster RAI in his claim against Chris, Will, Jonny and Guy…
