Stairway To Justice

Three cheers for common sense prevailing in the action against Led Zeppelin for plagiarism of the riff for Stairway to Heaven. If only the same good sense was present at the hearing of the case against Men At Work for plagiarising The Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree of the flute riff for their song The Land Down Under, writer and performer of that riff, Greg Ham, would in most probability, still be alive. It defies belief that anyone could find similarities between the two bits of music. Even the Kookaburra songwriter couldn’t connect the two.
