Led Zeppelin Would Never Claim Song Theft Says Page

(Classic Rock) Jimmy Page has insisted that Led Zeppelin would never launch a plagiarism lawsuit against another artist - even though there have been times when they could have.

The guitarist can't discuss the issue in depth because the legal battle over classic track Stairway To Heaven is the subject of an appeal, and may return to court.

A number of Led Zeppelin songs have been subject to ownership claims over the years, and the writing credits on several have been changed as a result.

Page tells the Telegraph: "I do know there's a lot of music where Led Zeppelin has been leant on. We didn't do anything about it - and I wouldn't want to either."

He cites the example of a bossa nova beat and says: "How would you define bossa nova? It was a whole jazz genre and it all starts with the beat. How far would the bossa nova movement have got in a corporate world today? It's really disturbing." Read more here.
