"Taj Mahal" and Rod StewartEdit

Ben filed a copyright infringement lawsuit claiming Rod Stewart's song "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" had been derived from "Taj Mahal". The case was "settled amicably" according to Ben.[3] Stewart admits "unconscious plagiarism" of Ben's tune in his 2012 autobiography.[4]
