Key Damages Questions to Ask in Copyright Mediation

In 2016, the jury ruled in favor of the defendant Led Zeppelin in the “Stairway to Heaven” case (Skidmore v. Led Zeppelin). In the fall of 2018, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in a controversial opinion, ordered a new trial. However, on June 10, 2019, the Ninth Circuit issued an order granting a rehearing of the case, en banc, and further ordered that the prior Ninth Circuit opinion may no longer be cited.
