PhilaU Psychology Professor Hass On Led Zeppelin and Music Plagiarism: The Atlantic

Richard Hass, assistant professor of psychology with expertise in music and creativity, talked about plagiarism in music and the recent lawsuit involving the rock group Led Zeppelin in an article in The Atlantic.

Part of the problem was that “particularly in their early days, Led Zeppelin had the habit, time-honored in blues music, of jamming around a known tune to construct new songs. Maybe they just got a bit lazy about hiding the origins,” Hass said in the Sept. 14 article.
