If you know your rock, it's no secret that there are crazy similarities between Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" and the instrumental "Taurus" by Spirit, but they've never filed a copyright infringement case.  That could change. An article in Bloomberg Businessweek suggests that Jimmy Page may have borrowed a riff from 1968's "Taurus" to create the opening of "Stairway" in 1970. Spirit bassist, Mark Andes, says the two bands played several shows together in 1969 and he believes Page heard them doing "Taurus." Spirit guitarist Randy California, who wrote "Taurus," said, "It was a ripoff and the guys made millions of bucks on it and never said ‘Thank you,’ never said, ‘Can we pay you some money for it?’ It’s kind of a sore point with me. Maybe someday their conscience will make them do something about it.” California died in 1997 and now Andes is working with a legal team. Check out the two songs and decide for yourself...
