Actually longer than that.

I am old enough to remember when the copyright holder for the Chiffons "He's So Fine" sued George Harrison over "My Sweet Lord" and prevailed in court.

Then again the 80's band Men at Work lost a lawsuit about their song "Down Under" over a song written and published in the 1930's.
