The MPA Crack down on large sites sharing tabs

Taken from the BBC News Website


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

The US Music Publishers' Association (MPA), which represents 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". ''

If you often look around for tabs you may have noticed the largest sites have changed. MXtabs for example has gone and been replaced with community forum.

Thankfully Ultimateguitar is still around but is it next to fall?

Its okay to stop websites from providing unlicensed songs but
at least they should not stop sites from providing lyrics .......

I thought that it was legal and acceptable provided you displayed the copyright owner of the music score and lyrics and or a acceptance that someone somewhere owns the rights to it... but it seems that this is not the case, or is it just third partys trying to shut down free competition so that they can open pay for access sites, perhaps it is acceptable to show say a couple of verse's or half a song in much the same way you can quote passages from a book legaly without any comeback, its all new legal ground does anyone know anymore on this. I certainly wouldn't want to encurage stealing but the lyrics.. come on you hear them everytime you hear the song and can quiclky learn them !

it's lyrics and tabs, but I don't know how far they've managed to take this. Ultimate-Guitar.com still works but they host their stuff in Russia I believe so they can't be touched.
