Coldplay Accused of Stealing a Song for the Third Time. (Now by Cat Stevens)

From EW.com (Entertainment Weekly)

Coldplay called out again for plagarizing? This time, it's Cat Stevens

Viva la Lawsuit! Less than six months ago, guitar icon Joe Satriana filed a claim seeking "any and all profits" for the piano-rock superstars' "Viva la Vida," stating that the Grammy-winning smash contained "substantial original portions" of the track "If I Could Fly," from his 2004 album Is There Love in Space? album. Now, Coldplay may be facing more legal problems -- for the same song.

Legendary bearded folkie Yusuf Islam, a.k.a. The Artist Formerly Known as Cat Stevens, has accused the band of jacking his 18-minute-long 1973 epic "Foreigner Suite" .

Take a listen, shall we? First, the Stevens track (in this excerpt, skip to about the four-minute mark):
