The decision of the Brits to leave the EU made it so very few people saw this story. Led Zepplin's 'Stairway to Heaven' was upheld as not plagarism in a jury trial. The problem is that it WAS 100% stolen from 'Taurus' by the band Sprit. Jimmy Page even tried to lie and say he had never heard 'Taurus' even tho he owned Spirits album with it on, and the bands toured together in the 60s. The reason Zepplin won was the Jury didn't hear the recordings, rather instead a guitarist played each song from ancient music sheets that were submitted who knows when and sound barely anything like the songs. It was the 60s i doubt they were too into paperwork. So tell me do you think they got by on a technicality and they did steal from Spirit? Or are they really guilt free?

I listened to both and it sound vaguely similar but not like a complete rip.
If I remember correctly this "everything is a remix" video points out a number of examples where zepplin songs are "remixed" (or ripped off) from other songs. So I wouldn't put it past them if they did steal it.
