Jacqueline Charlesworth Quoted in Bloomberg News on ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Infringement Lawsuit

Jacqueline Charlesworth was recently quoted in Edvard Pettersson’s Bloomberg News article “‘Stairway to Heaven’ Judges Asked to Give Songwriters a Break.” The article details the growing epidemic of lawsuits claiming infringement of well-known songs. Jacqueline explained that there are “a lot of unsettled issues” in music copyright law, citing the “Stairway to Heaven” case as a prime example. “The Ninth Circuit recognized the significance of the ruling and the impact it had on the music industry,” says Jacqueline. “The industry doesn’t want artists and songwriters to live in fear of infringement lawsuits.”
