Anybody who walks into a police station and tells the desk sergeant, "My tab has been stolen" will be greeted with, "So what?" and then fits of laughter. Even if they did take it seriously, you and I don't own the copyright to the songs we tab - that belongs to the artist. Our intepretations of other peoples' songs, as far as I know and believe, are not copyrightable.

Don't get me wrong, I'm annoyed that this cunt has nicked my tabs without giving me credit for my hard work, but the legal route will ultimately be fruitless. The best course of action would be to contact his web service provider (if you can find it out) and inform them of what he's doing. They can then choose to take action if they deem it necessary. Otherwise, our hands seem to be - frustratingly - tied.
