US court opens new legal 'Stairway,' overturns Zeppelin case

US court opens new legal 'Stairway,' overturns Zeppelin caseThe court in San Francisco overturned a 2016 judgment by a jury which found no proof the classic 1971 Zeppelin song breached the copyright of “Taurus,” written by Randy Wolfe of a Los Angeles band called Spirit. Wolfe’s trustee, Michael Skidmore, filed the case in 2015 on behalf of his late friend who long maintained he deserved credit for “Stairway” but drowned in 1997 having never taken legal action over the song. The case is “remanded for a new trial,” the higher court panel ruled Friday in a 37-page decision supporting Skidmore’s appeal.
