According to Sun News,
HMV and Best Buy confirmed that copies of ROBERT PLANT & JIMMY PAGE: Live in Japan 1996 are being removed from the shelves of their stores coast to coast after a lawyer for one of the aging ex-LED ZEPPELIN band members declared it a pirated DVD of a show the duo had done almost 20 years ago.

"It is a bootleg," confirmed lawyer George Fearon in an e-mail two days after QMI Agency brought the DVD to his attention.

"HMV Canada is ... removing both titles from our shelves until we have proof of their legitimacy," HMV spokeswoman Elyssa Macri said Friday.

Prior to that decision, company president Nick Williams said that the supplier of the Live in Japan 1996 DVD, Koch Entertainment, had told HMV that the product is legitimate and it could be sold legally in Canada.

Koch Entertainment could not be reached for comment.
