We've covered the public performance cases filed by ASCAP and BMI, and usually the named plaintiffs are (i) major publishers, like EMI and SonyATV, and (ii) the artists' boutique-publishing LLC. So, it was with great surprise that OTCS discovered this public performance case with the members of Led Zeppelin as individual named plaintiffs.
Don't get excited. The complaint is as vanilla as the rest. But, it is interesting to observe that Led Zeppelin appears to handle their publishing personally, at least on some level.
