Rumor: Zimmer being sued

It's still just a rumor, but sources like London's Daily Mail are reporting that the Holst Foundation and publishers J Curwen & Sons are going after the German composer for allegadely copying Gustav Holst's The Planets and (especially) working "Mars, the Bringer of War" into his own battle themes in the Gladiator soundtrack.

I ask: why now? People have been comparing Holst's "Mars" to Zimmer's "The Battle/Barbarian Horde" since Gladiator came out. Why sue the guy now?

Hmm.......maybe the money (a la the Holy Blood, Holy Grail authors)!
