Led Zeppelin win Stairway to Heaven copyright court battle

Recommended Posts

Who are the girls in the photo. Only joking, I was at Knebworth, UK when they played Stairway there - I was so stoned I fell asleep after the first 4 bars I am ashamed to say. Thirty years clean and sober now though.

I read that the case claimed that the "chord sequence" had been plagiarised; I thought chords couldn't be copyrighted. I have played the intro by accident a couple of times.

Obviously one doesn't like plagiarism but a dead person's estate has always struck me a step too far. And I thought the case against Men at Work over Down Under was not right either.

My thoughts on this is they obviously knew they didn't have a case but how many people clicked on/checked out their song over this thus an increase in residuals.
