2 songs, 1 chorus line

Recommended Posts

Cozy Powell had a hitrecord with Dance with the Devil,


The chorus of this song is an exact copy of the guitar chorus of Jimi Hendrix' Third Stone from the Sun, from 1967: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUg7xl4kKUw .

This is simply acknowledged as a fact in wikipedia.

I cannot remember any fuzz about plagiarism, when Dance with the Devil was released in 1974.

What was it then, ignored plagiarism, or permitted reuse of a wonderful melody line, or anything inbetween?
