Of course, but nobody's doing that. Nor it would be possible.

In this particular case, a jury, who aren't drooling morons, really, heard from experts from both sides explaining to them whether there was enough similarities or not between the two works, similarities beyond the six note riff, and that the quality of the work taken was enough to be a case of copyright infringement.
