Led Zeppelin: why lawyers must not dictate the future of rock‘n’roll

Led Zeppelin: why lawyers must not dictate the future of rock‘n’roll | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
As Led Zeppelin head to court to defend accusations of plagiarism, isn't it time to recognise that rock'n'roll has always borrowed from its past?

Another music related lawsuit. This one for plagiarism. 

Can they just accept the fact the music is about being creative. you can give the same sheet music and notes to 5 different people. Guaranteed to receive 5 different types of music with little to slight similarities. Of course this can be avoided 90% of the time, but they know what they are doing when they use the sample or whatever piece they take. Still its just abuse to be having lawsuits, ill say it again we are creative beings, that is what being a human is. We compete and always strive for better while creating. We all create.

Many artists have experienced legal woes. This not only damages the pocketbook but credibility as well. Some don't deserve to be damaged these ways. I feel that monetarily there should be standard fees or penalties paid by artists for minuscule uses of ideas. As with Led Zeppelin, their case is being brought by an estate. It could be said that they are actually keeping the past alive. Let's not forget the analogue era is beyond us. To put it in perspective, how many songs do we know from the fifties or even artists.
