11-Judge Appeals Panel Will Hear Copyright Dispute On Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway To Heaven'

One issue in the case is whether the jury should be allowed to hear a recording of Wolfe's piece by his band.

The trial judge in the 2016 trial did not allow jurors to hear the original recordings because copyright law in 1967 covered only written sheet music and not music recordings. Instead, the jurors listened to a later partial reconstruction based on the sheet music.

A second issue is establishing the correct jury instructions on exactly which elements or arrangements of elements of music are protected by copyright.

Chief Circuit Judge Sidney Thomas said in an order that the 11-judge panel will hear arguments on the case in San Francisco during the week of Sept. 23.
