The Supreme Court has handed Led Zeppelin a legal victory in a years-long copyright battle over “Stairway To Heaven”.
The band was being sued for allegedly stealing the song’s intro from a 1967 song called “Taurus” by the band Spirit.
On Monday, the Court declined to hear the case, upholding a prior jury verdict that ruled in favor of Zeppelin. The decision sets legal precedent for future cases involving accusations of plagiarism.
To hear Taurus by Spirit go here. You decide, is it coincidence…or theft?
