Litigation Levity: Led Zeppelin’s “Exceptional Talent”

If you haven’t heard, iconic band Led Zeppelin is being sued over allegedly lifting part of another band’s song for its own famous Stairway to Heaven.  In its answer to the complaint, Led Zeppelin keeps it real – and funny:

“Answering paragraph 11 of the First Amended Complaint, including the First Amended Complaint’s footnote 1, Defendants admit that Led Zeppelin has been called one of the greatest bands in history and its members were and are exceptionally talented,” the group’s answer reads, “but otherwise deny each and every allegation contained in paragraph 11 of the First Amended Complaint.”
