Who owns the rights to Kashmir etc?

X Factor would have applied for a blanket license with the song's publisher Flames of Albion Music, administered by Warner Music, for permission to use the song. However, as composers, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Bonham's estate, owns the right the song, and have the final say to object to the song's use if they wish to do so.

My understanding is that legalities and rights surrounding the use of artists' music on television is totally different from using it in, say, a film. If you want to use, say, 30 seconds of a Zep tune for a clip on TV, then it's generally not too difficult to get permission because it's for limited use within specified territories and timeframes. But to use a song in a film has a whole range of other considerations that you can probably see yourself.

They always use P Diddy's version or the orchestrated one. Zepp probably wopuldn't give permission to use the original.

I've heard Talksport use Zep's version many times as well as the BBC in various programmes.

Just have to attain a film and TV sync license from the publisher and get permission from the song writer's.

But, get ready to shell out some cash for at least 5000 copies (event's) at any where from 10 to 30 cent's each!
