    Default MPA cracking down on "unauthorized" Tab sites

    I went to jfrocks.com to check out some VH tab/video and seen this story....

    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".


    Details here...

    This sounds like bad news for those of us looking for free tab!!


    BTW..I was looking for tab/video for "Amsterdam" at jfrocks It used to be there but NOW I can't find it??

    Ok, so now guitar tabs are "completely illegal"? I wonder if the same logic applies to other stuff. If I figure out the lyrics to a song by myself and wish to sing it, can I not do that, because it is completely illegal? If I make a dessert that looks like something they made on one of the PBS cooking shows, can I be jailed for copying it?

    Yeah, jf rocks is completely out of commision in terms of his VH stuff. I wonder how long power tabs is going to be up? It's a shame, cause the average fan and guitar player just wants to learn how to play like their idol and have some fun in his basement. If anything, fan sites and tab sites would serve to promote an artist's profile and popularity, thereby increasing his fan base and potential revenue streams. Really, what's the big deal if somebody has a site that shows me how to play Unchained? Look at what this world is-war, violence, poverty, hunger, child porn on the internet-and we've got lawyers going after tab sites and fan sites. Go after the child molesters who congregate on the net and trade pictures and videos, and destroy lives, leave the geek in the basement with his guitar alone. Fuck.

    the law does not apply to personal interpretation of tabs and sharing them, So I am not sure why his free stuff is not still up. I can understand why they do not like him making money from it though.

    Right, how can they apply it to personal interpretation, and ask the tab sites to remove their stuff? If there are direct copies of copyrighted sheet music, then YES, take those down. Otherwise I don't see how this can be illegal.

    my guess is, he got in trouble for making money at it, so he removed all the free stuff just for spite. even so, you can teach someone to play VH, so why not let him sell videos. it is just getting redicules.
