Metallica Sue Over 'Copied' Chords
Rockers Metallica are suing a Canadian band they claim have copied their music.
In a Trademark Infringement Suit, filed at the American District Court in central California this week (begs14JUL03), the ENTER SANDMAN group allege UNFAITH's use of the guitar chords E and F "shamelessly" copies their own causing, "confusion, deception and mistake in the minds of the public."
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich explains, "People are going to get on our case again for this, but try to see it from our point of view just once. We're not saying we own those two chords, individually - that would be ridiculous. We're just saying that in that specific order, people have grown to associate E, F with our music."17/07/2003 13:59
