Led Zeppelin did not copy 'Stairway to Heaven' intro, jury finds

Music history will not be rewritten...A Los Angeles jury deliberated for about five hours before deciding the band did not steal its most famous licks from another band.

A jury found Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page not guilty of copyright infringement on perhaps their most famous song Stairway to Heaven.

The case centered on claims that Led Zeppelin copied key note patterns in the first two minutes of their hit from a song by the 1960s psychedelic band, Spirit. That song, "Taurus," is an instrumental ballad released four years prior to "Stairway to Heaven."
