MPA Versus Tab/Lyrics Sites

Check this out:

http://infowars.net/articles/decemb...91205lyrics.htm

This is getting out of hand. The MPA is even recommending jail time for webmasters of sites like MetalTabs. Jail time more than likely spent at the "Ministry of Love"

As I posted in a bulletin on myspace:-

"This Lauren Keiser person obviously had a childhood restricted to a basement corner and her only friend was a stick made of....moldy jam"

Put that in court, watch the case dismissed.

WHAT THE FUCK?

Oh well, atleast Nomad lives in australia. Those cunts can fuck right off, I mean, it shouldn`t be their case to shut down sites like this, but rather the bands who are getting tabbed, though most of them actually appriciate it. And it`s not many bands who release tab books, so I don`t see why anyone is loosing any money. Also, tabs are not bound to be correct.

Has this Lauren Keiser just married Lars Ulrich or something????

What next..... no more cover versions?

How can half of the grossly inaccurate guitar tabs that lurk on other tab sites be depriving artists of a living?

Good grief. Next thing you know people won't be allowed to teach each other songs in the flesh because of a stupid violation. That's all tabbers are doing is teaching eeach other without being in the room with the other person learning the song.

Go after the dirtbags in the system instead of the one's that aren't hurting anyone.

It's not just the states. A lot of stuff has worldwide copyrights.

Exactly, im so pissed of at this right now. If a band has a problem with people tabbing their songs, they should be the ones to tell us not to, not some gay organisation shutting down everything. If this really happens, chances are that the amount of good musicians will drop, as learning more techincal songs will be much harder.

I'd like to see them try and shut down OLGA.net. There'll be so many amicui curiae in favor of "open rights" and olga the MPA won't know what hit 'em.


....whoa....Lauren Keiser is a man????


"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".
"

Paper tigers, gentlemen. People are always trying to ban things, just as they're always trying to get police to shut down parties they can't enjoy. The kind of legal implications of a ban on something that is specifically noted to be a personal interpretation of how a piece of music may be played will prevent such a thing from ever happening; not even the most rigorous police state could be that on the ball. Besides, look at the bang-up job they're doing on nixing file sharing. Fuck these clowns, and don't let their petty, querulous, empty railing bother you. Definitely don't let it turn you into that 'I'm so oppressed' type of whiner.

haha.

Ya know, I think that the worst the MPA can ever do is make it to where we can't "download" or "save target as" to any tab. Most of my music teachers' websites use musical compositions for their course of study. Since that is illegal to give out free mp3s, they just have then to where you can only listen to them on the website--no downloading.
