    Lot of old tosh...

    Song sites face legal crackdown
    By Ian Youngs
    BBC News entertainment reporter

    Guitar tabs and other musical scores are widely available
    The music industry is to extend its copyright war by taking legal action against websites offering unlicensed song scores and lyrics.

    The Music Publishers' Association (MPA), which represents US sheet music companies, will launch its first campaign against such sites in 2006.

    MPA president Lauren Keiser said he wanted site owners to be jailed.

    Guitar licks and song scores are widely available on the internet but are "completely illegal", he told the BBC.

    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".


    Blokes a fecking pr1ck!!

    I think it was Mr Lennon who said that music belongs to everybody, is just the publishers who think that they own it ?

    Yes Mr Keirser is an arse.

    Anyway if you want a sheet music score theres nowt to stop you going to the local music library and photocopying it, mind you its only a question of time before they close down Public Libraries to end that loophole.

    Anway, who needs Public Libraries, we ought to be able to afford our own Libraries these days.

    Any guitarist worth his salt wouldn't need sheet music to copy such things.

    BTW George Harrison did quite a natty little guitar lick in "Got My Mind Set On You".

    Yep however I could never master the intro to Here Comes the Sun until I got the tab from the web , which pointed out you need a capo in the 7th Fret to boot.

    I hear Tony did a good cover of Georges number ,rebranded as Got my Legislation set on you.

    A whole lot of spending taxpayers money

    We all know where this is heading: one day it shall come to pass that if you happen to hum a tune you heard on the radio you will be expected to report yourself and pay the requisite tax. (This has happened on many time lines)
