Judgement in the "Stairway To Heaven" case

A legal dispute lasting for years, whether the beginning of Led Zeppelin's song "Stairway To Heaven" was copied from the song "Taurus" by the band Spirit, has now been decided in favor of the British band Led Zeppelin.

A judgement from 2016 had been annulled in 2018 due to a formal error. This complaint by the executor of the estate of the Spirit guitarist Randy Wolfe, who died in 1997, is about royalties in the millions.

However, the plaintiff's lawyer now wants to examine whether he can dispute the decision of the court of appeal.
