Bon Jovi Sued for $400 Billion (Yes Billion) for Allegedly Borrowing Lyrics

Jon Bon Jovi is being sued for allegedly borrowing lyrics from the song “(Man I Really) Love This Team”, the Boston Red Sox Anthem by a band called The Chelsea City Council.  Frontman Samuel Bartley Steele is seeking $400 Billion (thats $400,000,000,000 or over half of the Wall Street Bailout the Congress is working on) from Bon Jovi, who he says used his lyrics for the song “I Love This Town”.

Representatives for Bon Jovi and their and any other copyright protection lawyers that may need to get involved have stated they have yet to see the lawsuit.
