    Led Zeppelin Wins ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Copyright Trial
    Thankfully a considered decision was arrived at in the case of Spirit (Randy California et al) vs Zep.
    Randy's estate argued that a Spirit song "Taurus" was the whole basis for Stairway to Heaven. While I agree that Taurus is a rambling work too and that the guitar intro of STH is very similar, the works are very different.
    That's not to say that Zep didn't rip off a lot of guys from Mississippi...
    Nice to take a break from arguing about trademarks and copyrights and read about trademarks and copyrights.

    It was a clear rip, but it appears as if Spirit got a nice, healthy settlement...
