Default Judge Clears Stairway To Heaven Copyright For Trial

MSN.com: A trial is needed to determine if Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven copies its opening notes from a song performed by the rock band Spirit...

(A) federal judge has ruled...that lawyers for the trustee of late Spirit guitarist Randy Wolfe had shown enough evidence to support a case that Stairway to Heaven copies music from the Spirit song Taurus.

"Taurus" was written by Wolfe in either 1966 or 1967, years before Led Zeppelin released "Stairway to Heaven" in 1971...(L)awyers for Wolfe's trustee may be able to prove they are substantially similar...
