    Jefferson Airplane (2) alleged that the cover of their album Thirty Seconds Over Winterland was pilfered for the After Dark screensaver (also) showing flying toasters (1).


  2. Jefferson Airplane’s second live album, Thirty Seconds Over Winterland was released in April 1973. Its cover art depicts a squadron of flying toasters, a design that the band later alleged was plagiarized for the famous “After Dark” computer screensaver design.

    After Dark screensaver, Jefferson Airplane.

    JA sued the creators of the screensaver saying that the design was a copy of the flying toasters on one of their album covers. Case dismissed because they hadn\’t trademarked the flying toasters or something of the sort.


  5. Jefferson Airplane’s album, Thirty Seconds Over Winterland. the design was plagiarized for the “After Dark” screensaver for the Apple Mac.
