A little-known Belgian songwriter won a plagiarism case against Madonna in Brussels on Friday, leading a local court to ban the megastar's song Frozen from sale or broadcast in the country.

Songwriter Salvatore Acquaviva's suit had alleged that Madonna's 1998 hit off the album Ray of Light plagiarized parts of his song, Ma Vie Fout L'camp (My Life's Getting Nowhere)," which had been written five years earlier.

"The judge has ruled Madonna must withdraw from sales all remaining disks, and orders that TV and radio can no longer play Frozen," Acquaviva's lawyer, Victor-Vincent Dehin, said.

Good for that song-writer guy. I'm sick of artists ripping of little-known works with the mentality that no one will find out.
