Zeppelin Pirate Jailed

(antiMusic) Led Zeppelin doesn't have a whole lotta love for bootleggers and neither does a Scottish judge as a man convicted of pirating the legendary band's music has been sentenced to 20 months in jail thanks to the testimony of Jimmy Page.

Robert Langley was arrested at following a record fair in Glasgow in 2005 where the UK's version the RIAA seized CDs and DVDs being sold by Langley that included 11,500 of counterfeit Led Zeppelin material, according to the BBC.

He originally challenged the charges but after Jimmy Page testified at his trial he changed his plea to guilty. "The legitimate part is where fans trade music, but once you start packaging it up and you do not know what you are getting, you are breaking the rules legally and morally," said Jimmy Page.

"There are some of these type of recordings where it is just a whirring and you cannot hear the music. If you have something like this that appears legitimate then it is just not right."

A Glasgow Sheriff Court has ordered Langley to serve 20 months in jail after he admitting to three trademark and two copyright infringements.
