the RIAA strikes again.

Seriously.

Pretty soon thinking of a song in your head, will be monitored and sued for on an individual basis.

God help you should a song get stuck in your head.

They are also trying to ban sites that share lyrics as well

i think sharing tabs and lyrics helps support the music, but i don't these people care about making any sense.......they just want to bitch and throw thier authority around, they're all gonna burn in hell

man, that is so crushing, i agree with them totally it encouraged new musicians, and sales of sheet music may well go down as people wont buy sheet music out of spite now. for a new musician, this must really be a blow...the RIAA are taking things too far, this is a sick thing to do i reckon.
