Damn the downvoters are out in full fury right now. This should be at least a 4.3 for informative value. First, trying to stop the production of cassette recorders. Then shutting down file sharing services and suing users. Then invasive DRM which is moronic as it takes NO TIME to rip a CD and make unprotected files. Now this? Guitar tabs? What next, suing people for humming copywritten tunes?

anotherpowerpoint.ytmnd.com ... Read this before you make a slideshow. Yours has no glowing text, font is sized incorrectly, and your images are awful. Also, this isn't a parody so you really should use your own music and name... because as it is this is just a poorly executed rip-off.

PearLyrics an automated program that looks for lyrics (and tabs) of songs playing in your iTunes has also been KILLED for the same reasons http://www.pearworks.com/pages/pearLyrics.html Luckily the program still works and I have a backed up .dmg Next they'll be stopping autistic children with pitch perfect hearing playing music they hear on the radio.

This action is about as useful as the RIAA's challenge on stopping the downloading of MP3's. They just want to be put in the newspapers. The first thing you'll ask is "Why is the MPAA trying to stop something that has to do with MUSIC, not MOVIES?" The reason is they are being fed out of the hands of the RIAA. Big shock. Sign the petition if you think it will help: http://www.petitiononline.com/mioti/petition.html

What about buskers who use popular songs in their acts to make money? Or large chain stores that pump in music through their com system? Or DJs who buy music, and then turn around and play it for others? Is that all not the same use?

I remember people getting shut down for tablature back 10 years ago. The lunacy is as true today as it was then. In those days, the cure was Usenet. But one thing I've recently learned about the old days.. They are, in fact, the old days.

Almost every guitar tab site that I know of has been closed down. However, www.ultimate-guitar.com has not been closed down because it's run out of Russia and therefore RIAA, being an American industry, cannot touch that website.

The record companies are so f*cking greedy. People are resisting the fact that we're moving toward a point where all information is free, and nothing of non-material nature can be sold. It will take a while, but it'll happen. It's similar to how oil companies don't want us to have electric cars because they won't be able to charge us for

By the way, I hope the music industry realizes how much they are shooting themselves in the foot. Think of how many people will stop listening to certain groups because they can't play along with the tabs. A TON of artists will lose money.

Mantenna, how then, will people make careers out of making music, movies, games and books? I'm not saying it's impossible, nor arguing for harsher restrictions on sharing of information. But money has to come from somewhere.

How dare you use the internet to learn how your favorite songs are played, allowing you to understand them on a deeper critical and creative level? Listen to the radio, buy the new Justin Timberlake CD, and do as you're told. DONT MAKE ME SUE U >: (

Hm... Ya know, Cliff Notes synopsize whole novels, quote at length, & in fact, represent the original (c) work in its entirety but in an interpreted/abbreviated form... and THEY'RE very much (c) protected, under the principle that it's for educational purposes. Aren't guitar tabs like Cliff Notes for songs ? I mean, how come it's okay for copyrighted lyrics to be posted all over the net, and karaoke TV screens, ... but the guitar tabs are infringements ?

thats absolute sh*t, Tabs have been a staple of the internet JUST as much as porn. Whats next? Will you have to pay to print a picture? Thanks for bringing this to YTMND's attention

Wow, I haven't practiced guitar in a while, but after seeing this, I tried a couple of my old favorites: olga.net (OnLine Guitar Archive) and tabcrawler.com. Looks like they have also disappeared. Since there is no longer any content there, I can't directly prove it was a result of the NMPA, but I wouldn't be surprised. It is a sad day for music lovers.
September 26th, 2006
(0)
As much as I support music and musicians, using tabs as a crutch can be something that most guitarists/bassists tend to do. If you keep looking up tabs, then you'll get dependant on them. The reason why the MNPA does this is because people are looking up tabs instead of buying the sheet-music. (Most of the time, they have tabs IN the sheet music) Besides, you know with the sheet-music that it's right. Not everything someone posts on a tab website is correct...
September 26th, 2006

You JUST found out about this? R.I.P mxtabs (months ago). Worst point in music EVER

i dont think it should matter, because 99% of internet tabs are so wrong i can't use them.
September 26th, 2006

ultimate-guitar.com still stands strong, but this is a huge concern to me. I learned guitar from internet tabs, and I never would have without them. The only thing this "Ban" does is force up and coming guitarists to spend money buying tab books for the one or two songs they want. I would say this means War, but I do not know how to wage this one.

"If you keep looking up tabs, then you'll get dependant on them." Not really. Alot of people use tabs just to save time, and to make sue it's as accurate as can be. But yeah, as for the copyright thing, it pisses me off. In truth the sh*t you find in magazines is usually more accurate than the stuff you buy from there books. Many times these magazine are copied onto the websites, making them more reliable than these books.

tabs are basically the same as sheet music, instructions on how to play the song. That is covered by copyright. what is the problem? Do you support the unchecked free distribution of mp3s that are copy righted?
September 26th, 2006

and what do you guys propose music writers do? you know people who write music, but don't perform it themselves. why shuould performers get stuff for free while music writers get nothing? not all performers write their own music and vice versa. you don't if you are using tabs.

I don't play the guitar and I find this absolutely ridiculous. It makes me so mad that something useful that can teach people to learn something is being taken off the internet. I would assume most of the people who use the tabs from these sites just to learn how to play the guitar better. I'm sure if any money is made off of the tabs it is a very small amount. This organization needs to get its head out of its ass. This is ridiculous.
