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.
