I believe legal action was threatened since the 1970s but didn't eventuate until about 2015. Led Zepellin won the initial legals case in 2016 but there have been legal appeals. This last appeal was upheld a few months ago and so a new trial is to be held.

The original song "Taurus" by Spirit released in 1968.

The question is did Purcell and Back arrive at similar melody lines several centuries ago?
There has to be a clear case of plagiarism such as the Joe Satriani and Cold Play copyright legal case that involved 3 identical chords with one chord altered slightly and the melody played in exactly the same tempo. As well as Cold Play essentially singing the lyrics in the same phrasing as Satriani's guitar solo bit. Compare Viva La Vida by ColdPlay with If I could fly by Joe Satriani.
