Warning One for all the guitarists

Has anyone noticed that a lot of guitar tab sites have removed their tabs?

Taborama.com - "Tabs and lyrics for signed bands have been removed while we investigate possible copyright infringement. Please refer to the forum topic HERE to learn more and voice your opinion on the matter."

"The music industry is to extend its copyright war by taking legal action against websites offering unlicensed song scores and lyrics.

The Music Publishers' Association (MPA), which represents US sheet music companies, will launch its first campaign against such sites in 2006.

MPA president Lauren Keiser said he wanted site owners to be jailed.

He said unlicensed guitar tabs and song scores were widely available on the Internet but were "completely illegal".

Mr Keiser said he did not just want to shut websites and impose fines, saying if authorities can "throw in some jail time I think we'll be a little more effective"."

BBC News Report on this

Anyone now think all music in the future will be either purchased at extortionate record company prices, or entirely illegal?
Gig's might be illegal as the bands are breaking their OWN copyright..

The entire industry is run by a bunch of greedy old farts who peddle drugs to their own artists in order to keep them subserviant and knowing that a dead artist is more profitable than a live one.

That's ridiculous. Next they're going to ban music entirely because if we were able to listen to it, we might be able to figure out how to play it. no expression

This is unbelievable. I spend my entire lunchbreaks at work downloading and printing off tabs. Then getting bored 5 mins after trying to learn it when I get home.

Illegal tabs???? WTF, this is the most pathetic thing I've heard and potentially damaging for young guitarists.

If ever browsed a website and seen one of my bands tabs on there I'd be like whoaaaa amazing!!! People want to learn my song!!! Hopefully artists will back the websites!

one little reminder. Number of actual court cases the RIAA has won to date:0

They are an illegal cartel and should be disbanded. It's members should all be jailed for extorsion, price fixing, embezzlement, drug trafficking, bribery, and conspiracy to commit murder.
