"Stairway to Heaven" not stolen, jury rules Thursday
The opening riff of "Stairway to Heaven" was not stolen by Led Zeppelin a federal jury ruled on Thursday, the New York Times reported.
Two years ago, a suit was filed against the band over copyright regarding the song. The suit claimed Led Zeppelin members Jimmy Page and Robert plant stole parts of the song "Taurus" by the band Spirit released in 1968 for the beginning of "Stairway to Heaven," released in 1971.
What do you think? Do the songs sound similar enough for a copyright suit?
