Has anyone been following the trial?

Mods, please forgive me if this is in the wrong forum. This could really go just as well in Guitar Theory.

Personally I don't see the similarity. I understand what the plaintiff is trying to assert. But I don't feel it meets the definition of "ripped off".

They said that Zeppelin was at the show that spirit first played it at. Does that mean they heard it and processed the chord progression and thought..."hey that could work."

Jimmy said he owned 3 spirit albums but he also said he owns over 9000 albums and hasn't listened to them all. ( did some math and you would have to listen to them continuously for over 375 days to hear them all.)

I think If I was page I would get up front and play a GCD chord progression and let plant sing a melody of say 10 popular songs over them. Even someone who didn't understand music theory could understand that.

What do you think GN?
