Wow this is really fucking gay! Why are you admins paying heed to this letter anyway? I mean what's the worse they can do? You think they'd really press charges against you? I thought this site was run in Australia or something, aren't you exempt from certain copyright laws?

Maybe if you were to take off all the tabs from major bands on major labels like Metallica, Cradle of Filth, etc. they may back off, but that's a lot of effort and it's still really stupid.

How long until you guys decide to take action against this?

I mean come the fuck on.

They got shut down but did they take up the legal battle?

I ask because I think these guys are just assuming every webmaster will bow down to their treaths. I guess there's no webmasters out there that can afford to get into a legal battle with them.

I wonder if this ever went into court, with some previous court results we might be able to find out what the exact charges are and how they worked those out with argumentation. Don't know the English word but in Holland we have a database of cases handled by the legal system, everything out of there counts as 'jurespeditie' which basically gives a 'handle' for similair cases.

Yeah, he's the one that brought metaltabs under their attention.

If you don't stop that I'll permanently ban you. Two the same posts just in this thread. No spamming over metaltabs's dead body. Shut up, the fuck.

Might be a stupid suggestion and probably won't work but:

For those of us that actually write tabs, get a list of the bands you have tabbed songs for, especially those less known (i.e., not Slayer, Pantera, etc.). Then write each band an e-mail asking them to write another e-mail to the NMPA stating we can use their music (it takes a couple minutes at most). There should be no grounds for them closing the site down then, because we have permission. So instead of just bitching about how much this sucks, we can actually do something about it.

If we fail, at least we tried...then we can bitch.

Worth a try. I know quite a few bands represented here would have no problem with this, so hopefully they own their own publishing rights. Could go a step further if this proves successful and have something on the site with the rightsholders giving us permission to have tabs.

Ok seriously people better smarten the fuck up and stop sending the MPA stupid messages. Cause honestly that's not helping. It may seem funny to you but those messages are not productive and are just adding fuel to the fire. So seriously shut your fucking mouths and leave it for someone else.

I have permission for all the tabs I posted. I actually played a gig with them as well. On another note, Hammersmashedface is ok with me.

Nomad, I was asked if you'd gotten any prior notice from them before this letter?

FUCK NMPA

This is a fuckin' crap!

Since when tabs are illegal? Tabs are our own interpretation of a song, we're not stealing something... is someone out in the streets selling tabs? Everybody sells movies, music, ps games, etc... and nobody gives a fuck... but tabs?

FUCK NMPA!!!

In fact they never contacted me directly. I've received a letter from my hosting company telling that they have received a formal copyright complaint.

More info on the procedure can be found here.

Thanks everyone for your support, but please stop sending insulting letters to NMPA, it's not going to help the situation.

I'm currently checking possible solutions to bring the tabs online, including:
  • Asking NMPA which specific bands they represent and removing their tabs.
  • Obtaining written permissions directly from the bands.
  • Moving the website to a country with less restrictive copyright laws.
