While it’s renowned for its spectacular alpine setting, long runs and abundant snow in winter, it’s equally beautiful in summer.

Stairway To Heaven Isn't Blurred Lines

In response to a what was, for some, a less than ideal outcome to a recent court ruling from the 9th circuit that "Stairway to Heaven" had not in fact infringed upon the song "Taurus" by Spirit, copyright lawyer Rick Sanders weighs in on why the ruling may not be so bad for copyright law after all. _________________________ Guest post by Rick Sanders of Techdirt A few weeks ago, we wrote about the 9th Circuit overturning the district court's ruling in a copyright case questioning whe...

Stairway To Heaven Is Not Blurred Lines (techdirt)

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the 9th Circuit overturning the district court's ruling in a copyright case questioning whether the song "Stairway to Heaven" had infringed on the song "Taurus" by Spirit. We were less than pleased with this result, as we felt the original ruling was correct. Copyright lawyer Rick Sanders disagreed with part of our analysis and made some really great points in a two part blog post series, which he's graciously allowed us to repost in slightly edited form here. Par...

US court opens new legal 'Stairway,' overturns Zeppelin case

The court in San Francisco overturned a 2016 judgment by a jury which found no proof the classic 1971 Zeppelin song breached the copyright of "Taurus," written by Randy Wolfe of a Los Angeles band called Spirit. Wolfe's trustee, Michael Skidmore, filed the case in 2015 on behalf of his late friend who long maintained he deserved credit for "Stairway" but drowned in 1997 having never taken legal action over the song. The case is "remanded for a new trial," the higher court panel ruled Friday in...

The Basie-ites: 1956 and '60

Count Basie held onto his band throughout the 1950s and into the '60s because he didn't hold on tight. Rather than insist his musicians play only with him, Basie let them record as leaders or behind other artists whenever the band had extended time off. As a result, virtually all of his bandmembers recorded alone and together during this period. [Photo above of Basie guitarist Freddie Green] One of these groups that splintered off from the band to record was known commercially as The Basie-ites...

The self-contained Fusion electric guitar lets you truly rock out

 As a hard-core rocker and roller I find that my gear has to be ready to rock and/or roll at a moment’s notice. There is no telling when I’ll have to lay out a face-melter during jury duty or blast out some Stairway while giving plasma at the local blood bank, and I often note to friends that I enjoy rocking and rolling all night and part of every day.

Greta Van Fleet: From the Fires

My first exposure to Greta Van Fleet was through the last 30 seconds of "Highway Tune". I've listened to Led Zeppelin since the early 1990s, but I couldn't place the song. My initial thought was that it's a lost track I missed off the recently expanded remasters. When the song finished and the DJ said it was Greta Van Fleet, I wondered who they are. They are three brothers and a friend from Frankenmuth, Michigan. Joshua Kiszka supplies lead vocals, Jacob Kiszka provides lead guitar, Samue...

The Beauty of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in 20 Photos

“You’re skiing at Kicking Horse” my friend Judy says to me. “You do know it’s a big gnarly mountain, don’t you.” “Oh yes” I reply. “Last year I tried a run from the top and couldn’t see the tips of my skis for over half the run.” So it was with some hesitation that I returned to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. I admit I was nervous. Usually I’m not a wimp but this mountain scares me with its high preponderance of advanced, super advanced and are-you-kidding-me runs. My goal apart from discovering...

Why There’s Never Enough Time

I have this dream, and maybe you do too, of one day having enough time. It always feels like I’m in a particularly time-squeezed period of the year, or of my life. The state of having enough time seems like a real place but we but never seem to be there. Once I finish this project, once Christmas is over, once the move is done, I’ll have time. But right now, there’s not enough time to do everything. Quite a bit gets done, but something is always falling behind: emails, bookkeeping, self-improve...

Stairway to Heaven, Blurred Lines & the Unpredictability of Music Copyright Infringement

When does one pop song infringe the copyright of another pop song? US case law on the topic – which more or less mirrors Canadian law – shows the unpredictability of how music copyright infringement determinations are made. In two recent high profile US cases, one jury found for the plaintiff where the two songs had almost nothing in common (Gotta Give it Up and Blurred Lines) whereas in the other case, the jury found for the defendant even though there was significant borrowing from the plainti...
