A U.S. jury found Thursday that British rock group Led Zeppelin did not steal the intro to their signature track "Stairway to Heaven" from a long-defunct Los Angeles rock band.The jury in federal court in Los Angeles rejected claims by songwriting duo Robert Plant and Jimmy Page that they had no access to "Taurus," by the 1960s psychedelic five-piece Spirit.But the panel of four men and four women said there was no proof that the two songs were sufficiently similar for Spirit's copyright to have been breached.The lawsuit comes amid a rise in such copyright cases, with the family of Marvin Gaye last year controversially winning more than $7 million from a jury over the song "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams.
