A Los Angeles jury just showed Led Zeppelin a whole lot of love

On Thursday, the band won a high-profile copyright trial over whether it plagiarized "Stairway to Heaven." The band Spirit accused Led Zeppelin of ripping off the instrumental song "Taurus."

"Taurus" was written four years before "Stairway to Heaven," but the jury decided the songs were not substantially similar.
