Led Zeppelin Lose 1st Battle In Stairway To Heaven Fight

(hennemusic) Led Zeppelin's first challenge to dismiss a lawsuit over allegations they plagiarised portions of their iconic 1971 anthem, "Stairway To Heaven", from a song by the group Spirit has been denied by a Pennsylvania judge. Last month, the band challenged jurisdiction in the case, writing "The individual defendants are British citizens residing in England, own no property in Pennsylvania and have no contacts with Pennsylvania, let alone ties sufficient to render them essentially at home here." According to The Hollywood Reporter, in response, the plaintiff amended the lawsuit with some emphasis on why a Pennsylvania judge should oversee the case: "Defendants are subject to specific jurisdiction in this district because they make millions of dollars from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by directly targeting this district for the exploitation of 'Stairway to Heaven' through CD sales, digital downloading, radio and television play, advertising, marketing, concert performances, other performances, licensing, and otherwise targeting resident individuals and businesses to profit off the exploitation of 'Stairway to Heaven.'" U.S. District Court Judge Juan Sánchez has now denied the motion to dismiss or transfer without prejudice, meaning that the Zeppelin parties can still try again.

"In 1965 and '66, our brothers across the pond were making a lot of beautiful noise, and we attempted to create our own magical sound out here on the west coast", say Robby Krieger and John Densmore. "It's really nice to see them now turning around, coming back here to L.A., and recognizing what the four of us accomplished together on a beach in L.A. To receive this award on our own soil, from the Brits, is an honor, and we take it as a sign of respect, so--thank you, from us and on behalf of our fallen brothers, Jim and Ray."
