Closing arguments presented in Led Zeppelin song-theft case
As expected, the jury in the Led Zeppelin song theft case began their deliberations yesterday after defence lawyers for the band rested their case, and reps for both sides delivered their closing arguments.

As previously reported, the Zeppelin are accused of ripping off 'Taurus' - a song written by the late Randy California, aka Randy Craig Wolfe - for their much more famous work 'Stairway To Heaven'. The trust that benefits from Wolfe's estate claims that Robert Plant and Jimmy Page were exposed to the Spirit song at live shows in the late 1960s, which means it was well and truly in their heads when they sat down to compose 'Stairway'. The former Led Zeppers deny ever knowing the song they are accused of stealing.

That last point was a key debate throughout the trial, ie whether or not Plant or Page had heard 'Taurus' before writing their hit. There were at least two gigs at the end of the 1960s where the plaintiffs argued at least one of them would have heard Wolfe's song. Plus much was made of the fact Page has a copy of the Spirit album on which the song appeared in his record collection, he had said positive things about Wolfe's band back in the day, and Led Zeppelin included a short cover of another Spirit song in their early gigs.

Summing up, the lawyer for the Wolfe Trust, Francis Malofiy, told the court, according to Rolling Stone: "This case is about one thing: credit. This case is about copying. Give. Credit. Where. Credit. Is. Due". Referencing Plant and Page's testimonies where they denied having ever heard 'Taurus', Malofiy accused the rockets of having "selective memories", before honing in on inconsistencies between what they said in court and what they had said in interviews back in to day. "[Do we think their] memory is better now or in 1969 or 1970?"

Again questioning Jimmy Page's songwriting skills, seemingly and weirdly on the basis that the guitarist began his career mainly playing other people's songs, Malofiy also repeated his side of the other key argument in this case, just how similar - or not - 'Taurus' and 'Stairway' really are. His expert witnesses, he reminded the jury, said there was "substantial similarity" between the two songs, in particular in their use of "a descending chromatic scale in a unique and original way ... that is memorable and unique".

Page and Plant's team, of course, had their own musicologist who said the opposite. Their legal man Peter Anderson recapped his expert's testimony yesterday: that there was no "substantial similarity" and the two songs merely used the same "building blocks". And they were building blocks that have been used in many other works too, and which are outside the protection of copyright law.

Anderson also defended any memory lapses that occurred in his clients' testimonies, pointing out they wrote their song 45 years ago, and if Wolfe had had a problem with it, he really should have taken action back when it was released. The defence lawyer also argued that the plaintiffs had failed in any real terms to prove that either Plant or Page had heard 'Taurus' at the two Spirit gigs where they had at least been in the building on the day of the show. Indeed, he added, they hadn't even shown Spirit played 'Taurus' at those concerts.

Anderson also tried to question whether the Wolfe Trust even had the right to pursue this case, arguing that the publisher of 'Spirit' - which is not part of the action - was actually the owner of the copyright in the song, and that Wolfe's son, rather than the Trust, was possibly the rightful beneficiary of the songwriter's share. Though the judge had dismissed both these points earlier in the case, and didn't especially appreciate them being re-introduced at the final hurdle.

Unperturbed, Anderson concluded by referencing Malofiy's opening line, and name-checking the Wolfe Trust trustee who has pursued this action, Michael Skidmore. "Randy California is entitled for credit for what he did", Anderson said, again according to Rolling Stone, "but not what he didn't do, and Mr Skidmore is not entitled [to the royalties]. [The plaintiffs] are asking you to take this iconic song, 'Stairway to Heaven', and say it has a new parent in Mr Skidmore".

Jury deliberations will continue later today.

Cameras banned from court hearings to identify Prince's heirs
The judge overseeing Prince's estate has said that cameras won't be allowed into upcoming court hearings, which will consider the claims made by various potential heirs of the late musician.

As previously reported, with no will found, the courts are now trying to work out who Prince's heirs should be. Various people have made a claim to become a beneficiary of his estate, including his sister, several half-siblings and a man who claims to be the star's son.

Needless to say, there is plenty of media interest in those claims, but judge Kevin Eide has banned audio and video recording devices from the hearings, which will likely mean a smartphone ban too.

It's thought that several news organisations will challenge that decision, though Eide has already noted that court rules in Minnesota allow for paternity proceedings to be held in private. He also added that both media and the public may still be locked out entirely from some parts of the proceedings, even if they are allowed to report on other parts via the trusty reporter's pad and pen.

Peter Sunde to sue labels for defamation over most recent Pirate Bay ruling
Having expressed surprise last week that a Finnish court had ordered him to pay damages to the major record companies, Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde has revealed he is now planning to sue the labels for defamation. Good times.

As previously reported, a Finnish court recently ordered Sunde to pay 350,000 euros in damages to the local divisions of Sony Music, Universal Music and Warner Music in relation to the sharing without licence of music by 60 artists on the file-sharing platform. The court also ordered the de-listing of the offending content from the Bay with the threat of a further one million euros fine if that doesn't happen.

This was all rather odd because it's well known that Sunde hasn't been actively involved with The Pirate Bay for years. And even if you wanted to hold him liable for his past involvement, it seems rather unfair to demand Sunde remove content from a website he has no control over with the threat of a million euro penalty if he fails to do so.

The Finnish labels possibly went after Sunde rather than the anonymous team currently running The Pirate Bay because of his links to the country, he having Finnish family and having run in elections there. Either way, after the ruling against him was announced Sunde insisted he knew nothing about the case, adding on Twitter: "The record companies know that I have not had any part of TPB for ages, still suing - bullying is the new black".

Now the former TPB man is fighting back, claiming that the labels suing him over his alleged involvement in the piracy site when they know he no longer has any connection to it amounts to defamation of character. Sunde told Torrentfreak: "I've decided I'm going to sue them for damage against my good name and stealing a lot of time from me. I'm a public person in Finland and they're calling me a criminal when they KNOW I'm not involved in what they're suing me for. It's defamation".

Rita Ora gives evidence in trial of alleged burglar
Rita Ora appeared in court yesterday to give evidence in the trial of a man accused of breaking into her home last November.

Harrow Crown Court heard that two men broke into Ora's North London home while she and her sister Elena were asleep, stealing £200,000 worth of property. Her home was specifically targeted, say prosecutors. Eleana was awoken by a man searching her bedroom at around 5.50am.

Giving evidence from behind a curtain, Rita told Harrow Crown Court, reports the Mirror: "I went to sleep and was woken up by a scream. I was half asleep, then woke up and heard my sister running up the stairs. I opened the door ... she just ran up the stairs then she jumped on my bed and started screaming".

The singer made a panicked call to 999, which was played in court, in which she can be heard shouting threats to the burglars. Hearing it played back, she broke down in tears, saying afterwards, according the BBC: "That phone call freaked me out a bit - give me a moment".

Charaf Elmoudden, standing trial for the crime, denies any involvement, saying that he was at home at the time. He was picked out of an identity parade by Elena in January, who said: "I wouldn't forget that face ever".

The case continues.

StubHub to launch 'virtual view feature' in UK
eBay's secondary ticketing site StubHub has announced it is introducing "a whole new element to the ticket buying experience in the UK" by adding the 'virtual view feature' that is already available in the US to its platform over here.

What's that? Well, it's a little VR-esque widget whereby ticket buyers can see the "view from the seat they are about to purchase" in "a crisp and clear 360 degree" format "via the app from their mobile phone". They can look around the venue by moving the phone or, if they plonk their device into some cardboard specs, by moving their heads.

The service is obviously only available when StubHub is reselling tickets for shows at venues where it has shot all the relevant footage. The service will be available for the first time in the UK for a boxing event happening at The O2. The upgraded seat view function will also be available for venues like the Wembley Arena, Royal Albert Hall and Twickenham Stadium.

Says StubHub's International General Manager Estanis Martín de Nicolás: "StubHub is committed to bringing the best possible ticket experience to its customers and we are proud to be the first ticketing company to utilise virtual reality in the UK. The Virtual View feature allows customers to get a much better sense of the real view that they will experience from each seat before they buy it".

On the up side, offering that functionality means StubHub is presumably fulfilling its obligation to tell ticket buyers which seats they are booking. If only there could be a VR Mumford & Sons shouting "stop buying touted tickets" into the user's face, all would be well.

Spotify announces new merch sell-through partner
Hey bands, now you can start selling your pineapple leggings right there from your Spotify profile courtesy of the groovy guys at Merchbar. Which is to say the streaming service has announced an alliance with the music merch platform, meaning it will start pulling in information about any products artists are selling via the firm.

"Selling merchandise is a simple way for you to connect with listeners and help fuel your career", said Spotify yesterday. "Starting today, we'll be working with Merchbar - which features the largest selection of artist gear on the internet - to display your merchandise on Spotify. Merchbar offers shirts, socks, and even pineapple leggings from over 35,000 of the world's artists. Once your merch is listed, top products automatically populate on your Spotify artist page for fans to browse and buy".

The aforementioned groovy guys at the Merchbar are "THRILLED" about the development, by the way.

"Today we're THRILLED to announce a new partnership with Spotify that will create a massive new channel for artists to distribute and for fans to discover merch", they blogged. "Ultimately increasing revenue for artists and creating even better discovery and shopping experiences for fans".

They went on: "As Spotify's official merch partner, Merchbar will power merch listings across the Spotify platform, and over the coming months we will be working closely together to create new merch discovery experiences for fans and new features for artists and merch companies of all sizes".

If all these thrilling developments sound familiar, it's because Merchbar is Spotify's third partner in the merchandise space, having previously worked with Topspin and Bandpage to help artists upsell t-shirts and such like via the streaming platform. Those companies got bought by rivals of course - Beats Music and YouTube respectively - hence the new deal with Merchbar. Which will probably now get bought by Tidal next week.

Spotify celebrated its latest merch platform partner yesterday by going offline for a time. And why not, I say.

Trent Reznor is failing artists as Apple Music's Chief Creative Officer, says Tom Vek
Tom Vek has taken issue with comments made by Trent Reznor about the previously reported redesign of Apple Music. In a new blog post, he re-iterates points made in an interview with CMU earlier this year, saying that digital music services are letting artists down when it comes to the visual presentation of their work.

In particular, Vek focuses on a quote from Reznor's recent Billboard interview, in which he said of his decision to take up the role of Chief Creative Officer at Apple Music: "Every time there's a new innovation, the musician is the one that didn't have a voice at the table about how it's presented. I thought, if I could make a place where there could be more opportunities, and it comes with more fertile ground, and music is treated with a bit more with respect, that interests me".

"I totally agree with this statement but unfortunately it doesn't tally up with Apple Music... at all", writes Vek. "How do I as a musician have my voice at the table? What are the extra opportunities? Where is this fertile ground? Apple Music currently is basically exactly like any other streaming service out there - ie   you have no control about how your music is presented".

Noting that the Apple Music redesign now sees the corners of album artwork rounded off, he adds: "I'm extremely precious about my artwork. I think of rounding the corners of my work like cutting a few seconds out of my songs. How do I have a voice about this? ... Let's concentrate on creating an actual artform, a format, a great end-goal for a digital album experience".

"No fellow music artists I speak to are ever excited about releasing their music digitally, and creating something that does would have a huge impact on the industry", he says. "Empower the artist and you'll be amazed at the results".

Neil Fox to return to the airwaves with new digital station for London
Neil Fox is returning to radio via a new digital station launching in London called Thames Radio. He will host a weekly Saturday morning show for the new station.

Fox was last heard on air as presenter of Magic's breakfast show in September 2014. He went off the air after being arrested over allegations of indecent assault, though was later cleared of all ten of the subsequent charges made against him. But he didn't return to Magic after prevailing in court.

Confirming his new radio gig, Fox said: "I can't wait to get back on-air in the greatest city on Earth! Playing London's all-time favourite songs and being able to talk about everything that's happening in the place in which I live, and love, as well as being re-united with some great friends and colleagues from the past, is going to be an absolute blast. This is the station I have wanted to listen to for years, but it simply didn't exist. Until now!"

What colleagues from the past are there, then? Well, Pat Sharp for one, who will host Sunday mornings. Because Welsh radio firm Nation Broadcasting, which is behind the new digital channel, wants to bring back the hey day of London's Capital Radio from the 1980s and 1990s, partly by hiring in some of that station's former DJs.

Commenting on the new venture, Nation's Jason Bryant said: "As London's existing music stations have moved to become UK-wide services, we see an opportunity to introduce a truly London-focussed, great music and personality driven radio service to the world's greatest capital city. We're so excited to bring Neil and Pat back to London's airwaves, and we look forward to welcoming further big names to Thames in the coming months".

  Approved: Portishead - SOS
One of the highlights of Ben Wheatley's movie 'High-Rise' was Portishead's cover of 'SOS' by Abba, which the band recorded for the film's soundtrack.

Portishead had previously said that the track would not be available outside the film itself. However, yesterday it was uploaded with a video to YouTube, marking what would have been the 42nd birthday of the MP Jo Cox, who was murdered in her constituency last week.

The video closes with a quote from the politician, "We have far more in common than which divides us".

Don't forget to vote today. It's important.

Watch the video for 'SOS' here.

Tom Delonge responds to claims he left Blink 182 to study UFOs
Former Blink 182 guitarist Tom Delonge has commented on recent reports that he quit the band in order to devote more of his time to researching UFOs. Not so, he says. He never quit Blink 182.

In a recent interview with Mic, when asked if it was true that he'd chosen to focus on UFOs, rather than continue to tour with Blink 182, he said: "Well it's not so much about Blink. It's about what I'm doing with my life now".

"When you're an individual like me", he went on, "dealing with something that's a national security issue, and you're being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you've been passionate about your whole life - something that has the opportunity to change the world over time - being a small part of that is enormously important for my life path. But I can't do everything. I can't tour nine months out of the year with enough time to do the enormity of what I'm setting out to do".

So that's not entirely clear. What is also not entirely clear is his response to all of this, which came via a Facebook post, though he does reiterate that he never formally quit the band. "Quitting the band to search for UFOs? Hahahaha! WTF is wrong with you media?" he wrote. "I'm actually talking to Travis [Barker] about us right now... Never did quit, remember? But am I currently working with people in the government? YES. Including leadership from [Department Of Defense], Intelligence and Executive Branch? YES. Just wait for the documentary before considering ridiculous headlines".

Delonge published a UFO-themed book, 'Sekret Machines: Chasing Shadows', earlier this year.
