Led Zep in court again

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

A US ap­peals court has or­dered a new trial in a law­suit ac­cus­ing Led Zep­pelin of copy­ing an ob­scure 1960s in­stru­men­tal for the in­tro to its clas­sic Stair­way To Heaven.

Two years ago, a fed­eral court jury in Los An­ge­les found Led Zep­pelin did not copy the fa­mous riff from the song Tau­rus by the band Spirit.

But the 9th US Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals has ruled unan­i­mously that the lower court judge pro­vided er­ro­neous jury in­struc­tions.
