Foo fans are watching the [lastfm]Foo Fighters[/lastfm] backs hardcore; the band learned about the copyright infringement after one of their fans posted on a website forum:
Over here on Australian television we have a company called Re-Max [sic] advertising, they are using the riff from “Learn to Fly” and I was wondering whether [lastfm]Foo Fighters[/lastfm] were aware of it at all?
Obviously not. Now the [lastfm]Foo Fighters[/lastfm] are in full-blown litigation against Re-Max and the case will be heard in Australian Federal Court. The advertisement contains a ‘”substantial” riff from “Learn to Fly.”
Substantial enough to incur the wrath of the normally genial Grohl and company.
