BBC News reported a few days ago that the MPA will be “taking legal action against websites offering unlicensed song scores and lyrics”. The MPA president, Lauren Keiser, even said he wanted site owners to be jailed.
Might be fun to see if they care about this little software I made. If they for some reason do, they’ll have to attack Google.com too since all G-Lyrics does it a google search. G-Lyrics does not know if the site is illegal or not, nor does it host any.
Funny thing: I’ve probably bought more than 100 cds in the last 6 months and half of those does not come with lyrics, and many that do have lots of errors in them. When Ozzy sings “Treating people just like pawns in chess” my booklet says “Treating people just like PORN in chess”. Might be my hearing, but someone needs to reconsider their job as a transcriber.
I do understand MPA’s fight against illegal music downloads (though their sue-everyone-method is way wrong), but this is pretty far fetched!
