The justices also won't hear a lengthy dispute over the works of John Steinbeck.
The U.S. Supreme Court won't be reviewing the closely followed copyright battle over whether Led Zeppelin infringed a composition to create "Stairway to Heaven." On Monday, the justices announced a long list of cases that wouldn't be reviewed. Michael Skidmore v. Led Zeppelin was among them.
Skidmore is the trustee for the Randy Craig Wolfe Trust who asserted the U.K. band had infringed Spirit's "Taurus." In 2016, Led Zeppelin prevailed at trial before the dispute made noise at an appellate level. In a petition, Skidmore asked the high court to determine whether copyright protection under an older law was limited to sheet music deposited with the U.S. Copyright Office.
