  1. Based on what I hear in those companion tracks: A mix-down of existing tracks to use as a framework to work out additional parts, solos, and melodies for vocals - and to consider what you might want to do with the final mix and to re-consider and determine whether & how to change or fix existing tracks. Basically a working copy of the song as it currently stands (that you can take home, for example, to use as backing for noodling experiments).
  2. According to my copies of the DVDs (a 1999 DVD of the film and the 2007 Collector's Edition), the copyright in the film is owned by Swan Song whereas the copyright in the bonus materials (deleted scenes, omitted songs, etc.) is owned by Warner Bros. This suggests that Page et al. own and control only the original film and probably only the soundtrack to that original film and that Warner owns whatever was left over and not used in the film. My original vinyl (purchased new many many years ago) of the "soundtrack" says the copyright was owned by WEA Records. Ltd. Assuming WEA is basic
  3. Yep, only a theory (I might call it a mere hypothesis). The prior shows at the Sports Arena without similar issues cast doubt on it, for sure. Those prior shows are not perfect "controls," however, since there are other relevant variables unaccounted for - e.g., the PA equipment, monitor system, physical layout/positioning of speakers, and how the stage was set up within the venue all might have been different on these various occasions. In any event, I concede that the simplest explanation is likely the correct one . . .
  4. Regarding June 19, 1977: The acoustics at the Sports Arena in San Diego are horrendously bad. Notoriously so. Huge, deafening echos that go on and on and on, with an almost subwoofer-esque enhancement of low end. I wonder if Bonzo was slowing down in an effort to hear himself and the rest of the band, perhaps to separate the monitor sound from the echoes of the arena by ensuring the tempo of the song (variable, by him) was different than the tempo of the echoes (fixed, by the acoustics of the arena). Especially at the beginning of the show as the front-of-house sound folks worked to tame
  5. Below is a link to a piece I put together for my legal website about Skidmore v. Led Zeppelin. Like my other case reviews, it is directed to junior and mid-level intellectual property lawyers (or more senior lawyers looking for a high-level, bullet-point summary) and is a bit "legalistic." Nevertheless, it might, in whole or in part, be interesting and helpful to non-lawyers seeking to understand what the allegations actually were and what the court of appeal actually decided. For example, on the first page I show the infringement allegations visually using a reproduction of the relev
