One of the songwriters making legal claims to have written some of Bob

well known song writer, but it would not be fair to assume no such
claim could ever have merit. Judge for youself on this one. ;-)
The rec.music.dylan newsgroup certainly has been pestered with more than its share of reminders of this case.
