Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

Jury closed their eyes while listening to the audio clips. Methinks a verdict will be coming soon at #StairwayToHeaven trial. Hang tight.

This doesn't sound good for Page & Plant.   I thought the case was supposed to be judged on sheet music only?

They've mainly been listening to expert performances of the songs based on the original sheet music - that's what just happened in court.

Molify should have gotten a signed Album in the beginning and sold it on Ebay because that is the only way he's going to get $$ out of this bullshit.

OK, thanks for the clarification.

Hats off to the jury for making the correct decision.    Maybe the tide has finally turned on these over the top lawsuits.

So so so very happy for the band - especially Jimmy as it was his opening chords that were under
the scrutiny and the fact he admitted he owned Spirit album along with liking their music.

This jury did a good thing today for music history. The estate of Randy California Wolfe came
to play and they got beat. Haha I am so glad this trial has come to end. It's been suspensful 7 days.

I wish we had pictures to see the relief and smiles on Jimmy and Robert's face.  Aww I bet they
bro hugged
:wub:

Good for Jimmy and Robert and good for the arts as far as I'm concerned.  Back to chasing Philly ambulances and being a frustrated musician for Malofiy!

Now Skidmore et all have to pay for their own legal fees for what turned out to be a stupid case. Serves them right. You don't put the remaining 3 Led Zep geniuses on the stand and get away with it!  +1 for Led Zep!!

Great result, like I have already said, similar is not the same. 'Spirit', (former members of) a band that never made much money now have a huge legal bill that they are unlikely to be able to afford to pay. Randy California did not sue because he could not afford to in the event that he would most likely have lost...

I hope Jimmy and Robert Counter-Sue and as classy as they are would donate the money to charity or whatever

Nah, I think they are quite happy to move on at this point. Let's get Jimmy going on his solo album, that's what I'm really waiting for. Something tells me it's going to be special.

They are probably exhausted at this point, but who knows in a way, maybe Warner may sue on their behalf ?  Dunno how that works out

You will be waiting forever, the solo album is never going to happen.

Did the jury mention anything about Strider forgetting his wallet?
