Bon Jovi Sued For 400 Billion Dollars

A Massachusetts-based musician Samuel Bartley Steele is suing Bon Jovi for allegedly stealing his lyrics from (Man I Really) Love This Team and rewriting them to create I Love This Town.

Steele alleges the group’s frontman Jon Bon Jovi heard the song while campaigning for U.S. Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry in 2004, and used its lyrics to create his hit song I Love This Town - which was later used as a promotional track for Major League Baseball.

He wants $100,000 for every cd sold. Since there were 4,000,000 that were distributed - he felt it was the right number to pitch to a judge. Good luck Samuel... good luck.

"As intent will be easy to prove, we are seeking the statutorily authorized amount of $100,000 per CD sold. Just under 4 million CDs have been sold to date. This totals almost $400 billion."
