Does Led Zeppelin's notorious history of stealing riffs prove they stole 'Stairway to Heaven'?

A jury just cleared Led Zeppelin of plagiarism charges. The band was accused of stealing the intro of their classic hit Stairway to Heaven"from Spirit's instrumental song Taurus. People are split on whether the songs have similarities, and if Led Zeppelin actually stole the intro to Stairway to Heaven. But others believe they stole even more riffs. Did Led Zeppelin steal Stairway to Heaven and other riffs? 

Critics have compared Led Zeppelin's riffs to those of other blues and rock songs. According to Showbiz 411the band notoriously stole music from Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Howlin’ Wolf. But wait ... didn't the band admit to strategically stealing songs in the past? Hmm ... So, does this prove that Led Zeppelin stole Stairway to Heaven and other riffs? 

Or are critics buggin' with accusations about the band's classics? Of course, their fans don't think they stole anything. The jury ruled in their favor  stating the songs have no similarities. And fans are happy about it. Many find the plagiarism case to be pointless. Some have questioned why the case exists against a 45-year-old classic anyway.
