Oh yeah, they are clear. The Zep song is downright plagiarised, even worse than Tusk. Should have been called Boogie with Ritchie.

To me, one of the more bizarre examples of plagiarism started with Jimi recording Third Stone from the Sun in 1967.

Cozy Powell recorded Dance with the Devil in 1973 using Jimi's exact melody (see at around 55s of the clip).

In 1978 Boney M's Nightflight to Venus lifted Cozy's solo patterns verbatim.

No one lifted anything from Boney M as far as I can tell :)
