And the world comes crumbling down
I'm glad they are to be honest, if I ever want lyrics to a song I can never find a decent fansite for all the stupid spyware-ridden pop-up laden commercial sites whose only purpose is to generate money from (malicous) advertising. I am hoping that this might attempt to close all of those large sites down but leave the smaller fansites as they are. If they want to close all sites with lyrics on then obviously that's a bad thing, but I get so annoyed with all these 123-lyrics.com websites I'll be glad to see the back of them.
In reality though, I don't think much will change, at least not for a long time.
Such a pile of ****ing bull****.
ray: try http://songmeanings.net
Ah nice one Grandmaster!
The most hardcore of fans are the ones that make tabs and post lyrics. I can't believe they would go after people who hang from every note they put out when they're just appreciating and imitating the music they love.
Ray's got a point about the popup city commercial sites, though!
This is utterly pathetic. There looking everywhere now and it's stupid.
You said it.
I still fail to understand a business model that involves prosecuting your best customers.
Songmeanings.net is a good website as Grand posted
I don't see how lyrics and tabs are illegal?
Better tell my step dad since he likes to get tabs every so often.
I sort of agree with you there. I hope they're just going after any of these 'lyric' sites that lure people in to generate some sort of $revenue$ via their ads which is probably a common sense 'no-no' now a days...
Extremely well said Muzi.
I was drawn to this
ummm... how did they figure this out? I'd be real interested to see the numbers they've fabricated out of thin air on this.
I have about 10 full books for music, and about 5 songs that I have printed off.
What next, mics hidden everywhere so no one can sing-play or teach the music to somewhere else?
money money money money money money money money. The end.
remember when they wanted to get names of people who purchased cars from the last 50 years? i bet this will blow over like it
by far the most insane thing I have ever heard
I love hearing the music I love being played live in clubs, even when its not the proper band.
Honestly I would love to hear what the actual artists think of this move.
I know a band who has all their lyrics, tabs and other stuff online, will have to get the URL from one of their members sometime. They even put entire albums online, and make money of donations that they ask if you download their albums, than they would make if they were produced by a big music studio.
