Led Zeppelin Appeal

According to Courthouse News, an appeal has been filed in the case of the federal copyright infringement lawsuit claiming the opening to Led Zeppelin's 1971 classic "Stairway To Heaven" was a rip-off of the 1968 instrumental song "Taurus". 

 Michael Skidmore, the trustee of "Taurus" songwriter Randy "California" Wolfe's estate, had brought the claims more than four decades after "Stairway To Heaven" appeared on Led Zeppelin's  untitled album, better known as "Led Zeppelin IV". A Los Angeles jury deliberated for about five hours before deciding unanimously in favor of Led Zeppelin.


Air Conditioner Tips

Clean your filter. If you haven’t cleaned the filter on your air conditioner since last year, it’s costing you more than it should to run it.

Make sure you’re using all your fans. They’re way cheaper to run, so use them to circulate the cold air. And set them to run counter-clockwise in the summer.

Make sure you’re not blocking air vents with furniture. And make sure your thermostat is in a good spot. If the sun hits it or it’s in a room that’s warmer, the A/C will keep running even when the rest of your place is cool.

Stop cooling down rooms you’re not using. If you have an extra bedroom, keep the door closed. And if there’s an air vent in there, keep that closed too.

Keep your blinds and curtains closed. Your air conditioner has to work a lot harder if the sun’s blasting in through the windows.

Led Zeppelin's Publisher Seek $613K

Publishing company Warner/Chappell Music are seeking $613,000 in legal fees for the Led Zeppelin "Stairway To Heaven" copyright trial. The jury in the six-day trial ruled that Led Zeppelin did not plagiarize the opening chords of "Stairway To Heaven" from Spirit track Taurus.

Warner/Chappell asked for the money for defending Led Zep against plagiarism claims and accused the attorney who filed the case of "gross misconduct," according to Courthouse News. Now Warner/Chappell wants to claim back the $613,000 in legal fees it says it spent defending the claim, which was led by solicitor Francis Malofiy. Malofiy - who was representing Michael Skidmore, the trustee for late Spirit guitarist Randy California - has since been been suspended for three months over his conduct in an earlier rights trial.

Warner/Chappell says: "Plaintiff's Philadelphia counsel's misconduct in this case is a continuation of the misconduct that earned him a substantial monetary sanction as well as a three-months-and-a-day suspension in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania."


Disable iPhone cameras at concerts ???

Apple's plans to use infrared signals to prevent fans taking pictures or videos at concerts – but only if venues make it clear the technology will be in use. 

Gene Simmons of KISS says he backs Apple's plans to prevent fans taking pictures or videos at gigs – but only if venues make it clear the technology will be in use. 

"When we first started out, this was before cellphones or technology and even voice mail," he says. "There was no cable, there was no nothing, so at the concerts, they took away your cameras – they didn't allow you to do that."

Metallica CD up-date

Metallica is looking to finish recording their 10th studio album and possibly releasing it this fal. It’s been a long eight years since Metallica released Death Magnetic, which is seen as somewhat of a bounce back from 2003’s St. Anger. According to Bild, Metallica’s 10th studio album could arrive on Oct. 14. However, Universal Music, which distributes Metallica’s music overseas, has not confirmed that date....

 “We’re mixing it now, so hopefully by fall it’ll be out and hitting people’s ears,” frontman James Hetfield said in a recent interview. “We’re super stoked about it. It’s been a long time coming, and, you know, this is what we do. We love playing, and the next album is exactly what it’s supposed to be, so we’re excited about it.”
