Led Zeppelin won a major copyright battle settling a dispute over whether the band’s iconic “Stairway to Heaven” song stole from Spirit’s 1968 song “Taurus.”The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a jury’s previous decision which found Led Zeppelin to be in the right in 2016. Monday’s decision follows an appellate court vote to redo of the trial with a larger panel of judges.The decision overturned the “inverse ratio rule” precedent, which has largely controlled copyright cases in the 9th circuit for the past 43 years.Also Read: Led Zeppelin Copyright Trial, Round 2: Band's Accuser Files for AppealIn order to prove someone’s copyright was infringed upon, a plaintiff much show that the two works are “substantially similar.” The rule says that the more evidence there is to show that the defendant had access to the plaintiff’s work before producing the material in question, the less similarity between the two works is required to establish infringement.Record labels and major recording artists have been frustrated with the rule for decades — a recent example being Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” song, which was found to have infringed on Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up” in 2018.Francis Malofiy, attorney for the plaintiff, called the decision “disappointing” in a statement to TheWrap Monday.Also Read: Chris Cornell Ended His Final Concert With a Song About Dying (Video)“The way we look at it is this is a big win for the multi-billion corporate music industry against the creator and that’s the reality no matter which way you cut it. They won on a technicality and not on the merit itself. It’s disappointing the 9th circuit which ruled in our favor would then come back and dispose of the very things that were at issue and that allowed Zeppelin to win on a technicality,” she wrote. “This is by no means finished and we don’t drop our sword over here. We could ask for a reconsideration of the whole bench of the 9th Circuit or we could go to the Supreme Court.”A request for comment from Led Zeppelin’s attorney was not immediately returned.Pamela Chelin contributed to this report.Read original story Led Zeppelin Land Major Victory in ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Copyright Case At TheWrap

Public Enemy Frontman Chuck D opened up about the cease and desist letter sent by his former rap partner Flavor Flav to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, saying in a series of tweets Sunday that Flav’s issue is “not about BERNIE.”Flav’s attorney sent a letter Friday to Team Sanders, telling them to stop using his likeness and Public Enemy’s name for his campaign. (Sanders’ campaign had announced a stop in Los Angeles last week with a poster using the title of Public Enemy’s famed song “Fight the Power” as a call to action for his campaign. The poster also said the rally will be Bernie Sanders and Public Enemy.)Chuck D, who has publicly endorsed Sanders for the Democratic nominee for president, admonished those who ascribed the cease and desist letter to any perceived distaste by Flav of Sanders’ candidacy. Instead, he says that Flav isn’t politically involved.Also Read: Public Enemy's Flavor Flav Sends Cease and Desist Letter to Bernie Sanders“It’s not about BERNIE with Flav… he don’t know the difference between Barry Sanders or Bernie Sanders, he don’t know either,” Chuck D tweeted, referencing an incident earlier this weekend when country singer Garth Brooks wore a Barry Sanders football jersey during a performance in Detroit, causing some to mistake it for an endorsement of the senator rather than a shoutout to the Detroit Lions legend.“I don’t attack FLAV on what he don’t know,” Chuck D continued. “I gotta leave him at the crib so y’all trying to fill his persona with some political aplomb is absolutely stupid. Obviously I understand his craziness after all this damn time.”Chuck D will perform on Sunday evening at a Bernie Sanders rally in Los Angeles as part of a spinoff group called Public Enemy Radio. While the poster includes the word “Radio” in the Public Enemy logo in smaller font, the news of the performance still brought out a response from Flav through his lawyers.Also Read: Joe Biden Wins South Carolina Democratic Primary; Sanders Is Distant Second“Sanders has promised to ‘Fight the Power’ with hip hop icons Public Enemy – but this Rap Icon will not be performing at the Sanders Rally,” Flavor Flav’s cease-and-desist letter sent Saturday read.“To be clear Flav and, by extension, the Hall of Fame hip hop act Public Enemy with which his likeness and name have become synonymous has not endorsed any political candidate in this election cycle and any suggestion to the contrary is plainly untrue. The continued publicizing of this grossly misleading narrative is, at a minimum, careless and irresponsible if not intentionally misleading.”Read original story Chuck D Says Flavor Flav’s Cease and Desist Letter to Sanders Campaign Is ‘Not About Bernie’ At TheWrap
This week in hip hop beef, Flavor Flav has taken issue with Bernie Sanders’ use of his likeness and Public Enemy’s name for his campaign.The Public Enemy co-creator sent a cease and desist letter via lawyers to Sanders. Flav’s bandmate and Public Enemy co-creator Chuck D has publicly endorsed Sanders for the Democratic nominee for president and plans to perform at a rally for the senator in Los Angeles.In his letter, Flav’s lawyers note that neither he nor the iconic group have not endorsed any candidate.Also Read: Ocasio-Cortez Insists Bernie Sanders 'Works Very Hard' to Tamp Down Bernie Bros' 'Toxic' Messaging“While Chuck is certainly free to express his political views as he sees fit — his voice alone does not speak for Public Enemy,” Flav’s lawyers wrote. “The planned performance will only be Chuck D of Public Enemy, it will not be a performance by Public Enemy… To be clear, Flav and, by extension, the Hall of Fame hip hop act Public Enemy with which his likeness and name have become synonymous has not endorsed any political candidate in this election cycle and any suggestion to the contrary is plainly untrue.”Sanders’ campaign announced a March 1 stop in Los Angeles last week with a poster using the title of Public Enemy’s famed song “Fight the Power” as a call to action for his campaign. The poster also said the rally, to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will be Bernie Sanders and Public Enemy.“It is unfortunate that a political campaign would be so careless with the artistic integrity of such an iconoclastic figures in American culture,” the letter reads. “Sanders claims to represent everyman not the man yet his grossly irresponsible handling of Chuck’s endorsement threatens to divide Public Enemy and, in doing so, forever silence one of the nation’s loudest and most enduring voices for social change.“Perhaps Sanders didn’t intend to sow these irreconcilable differences but, by and through his disregard for the truth, he has nonetheless.”pic.twitter.com/oNkP0YDhoi— Itay Hod (@Itayhod) February 29, 2020Read original story Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav Sends Cease and Desist Letter to Bernie Sanders At TheWrap
(Warning: This post contains major spoilers from Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer.”)By the end of tonight’s episode of “The Masked Singer,” almost every panelist — with the exception of the ever-stubborn Ken Jeong — had correctly guessed the identity of The Mouse contestant as legendary singer Dionne Warwick before she was revealed and eliminated.Heck, even guest judge Gabriel Iglesias knew that the “I Say a Little Prayer” songstress was the one hiding inside the super cute rodent costume due to her “undeniable voice,” as Nicole Scherzinger put it.Yeah, Warwick told TheWrap it was pretty much impossible to conceal her signature tone — so she didn’t even try.Also Read: 'The Masked Singer' Unmasks Another Celebrity Contestant: And the Mouse Is... (Video)“There’s no way to disguise my voice, unfortunately — or fortunately,” she said, laughing.If she could do it over again, the Grammy winner says she’d have attempted to hide it a bit, but truly doesn’t know what she’d have done differently to pull that off.“The only thing would be to try to disguise my vocals, but there is no way in the world I could ever think of disguising them,” Warwick said. “I don’t know how to do that.”Warwick made it to Wednesday’s Group B playoffs but lost to Banana, Taco, Kitty and Frog — meaning she only got through that lineup’s Round 1.Also Read: 'The Masked Singer' Edges Mike Bloomberg and NBC's Dem Debate in Early Demo RatingsBut she’s hardly the first professional singer to be eliminated just a few episodes into the season, as fellow Grammy Award winners Lil Wayne and Chaka Khan were both booted from Group A. And let’s not forget that Season 2 saw the early dismissals of legends Seal and Patti LaBelle.When we asked Warwick why she thinks acclaimed singers keep dropping like flies on “The Masked Singer,” she told us she isn’t really sure. But she does think it makes sense you can identify them so easily before they’ve been unmasked.“I guess, you know, it would be that they created an aura around who we are, and our voices are our identity,” she said. “So it’s kind of hard not to know who we are when people are accustomed to hearing you.”Also Read: 'The Masked Singer': Why the Elephant Turned Down the Taco CostumeOK, but what’s her opinion on those incorrect guesses, like Jeong’s persistent theory that she was Tina Turner?“It’s wonderful to be thought of among that group of wonderful voices. It’s quite a compliment,” Warwick said.“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.Read original story ‘The Masked Singer': Mouse Tells Us Why She Didn’t Even Attempt to Disguise Her Voice At TheWrap
