Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin Targeted in Copyright Infringement Lawsuit


Jimmy Page


Jake Holmes claims he obtained a copyright for 'Dazed and Confused' before the guitarist and his band recorded the song.

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has been targeted in a copyright infringement lawsuit by an American folk singer, who alleges the band's hit single "Dazed and Confused" was illegally sampled from his earlier version.

In a Federal lawsuit obtained by TMZ.com, folk singer Jake Holmes claims he obtained a copyright for "Dazed and Confused" in 1967 - two years before Led Zeppelin recorded their version of the song. But, due to the statute of limitations, Holmes is only able to sue for damages from the last three years. Holmes wrote and recorded "Dazed and Confused" for his debut solo album "The Above Ground Sound", which was released in 1967.

Page reworked the song for The Yardbirds, and subsequently Led Zeppelin in 1968. Led Zeppelin hold a separate copyright, which the folk star now disputes.
