Music industry is at it again

The music industry is continuing its efforts to alienate their customers. This time it's the UK music industry leading the charge over copyright issues.

The problem? Sites providing music lyrics, guitar chords and scores.

According to Telegraph newspaper online, this was the inevitable next step after successful legal battles against music download sites.
Websites face a war on 'theft' of lyrics: "Executives at Warner Chappell are fed up with internet entrepreneurs 'ripping off' songs - from perennial favourites such as Happy Birthday and Rhapsody in Blue to the music of Madonna and Sir Elton John ... The move comes ahead of a campaign by the Music Publishers Association of America, which represents sheet music companies. It is to target "very big sites" that internet surfers think are legitimate."
