After just relizing that when I proof-read/edited my last blog some major additions didn't go through I decided it would be easier to just write a new blog for them. So here I am now
Who is the MPA that so plagues tab sites? Is it the artists? Nope. Its the labels, (well actually a board of members who are pretty much doing what the labels want them to do). Many artists have actually learned to play gutiar using Tabs, and they support them. Its the labels who are taking the music out of the hands of America's (and the World's) youth, many kids can't afford lessons or expensive songbooks. They rely on Tabs and sites like UG.
Am I the only one who finds it ironic that the same kids they are taking the abilty to learn to play an instrument away from are also the same kids that one day would of made the money for labels (if they still exist )? They are cutting off their future means of income! How utterly stupid can you be?
Tabs don't even pose a copyright infringement! They are the author's personal point of view and personal take on the song. To them the song sounds like this: "XXXXX" and thats they're personal take on the song, not the artist's. Its the same as a music review in that sense. Are they sueing review writers as well now?
Let them dig thier own graves and spend all their money on lawyers to sue dead men and computer-less familys for copyright enfringement.
