Default MPA banning tabs

As most of you probably already know, the MPA (Music Publishing Association) is holding all forms of unauthorized tablature as copyright infringement against the bands who wrote the songs being tabbed. This has led to many music tab sites and forums to be shut down. The MPA thinks that this will help bring money back to the music industry through people having to buy official sheet music. What a joke! If they wanted to bring money back to the music industry they should go after the free music download sites. Tabs allow so many people to learn how to play guitar and bass. Don't they see that when people can learn to play their favorite band's songs that it promotes the music so that if the band comes out with more albums then the fans will buy them? By banning tabs all they're going to do is to piss off the fans that are already pissed off against the system. That'll lead to weaker fan bases and will probably also lead to a decrease in album sales. So what are they thinking? I personally think that if the MPA was smart they'd be advocates for correct tabbing of songs, and not try to ban tabs. But that's only me....

what are your opinions?

The artists are getting credit does it even matter? They're being lame and greedy.

no they should concentrae on putting out QUALITY products such as good, full albums and such perahps this would be a good start..
I mean or if they really wnt to get rificulous about it then they should ban cover songs, "tribute" bands, albums and stuff like that too because then the tribute band gets part of the money too oh geeze where will it all end..

Greed is an ugly monster. We need some people to constantly send tab around the internet, and just make them insane like gnutella once did.

its petty, i mean, like the music industry doesnt bring in enough already. what are tabs going to do....put a little less in their pocket every month?

whats even more ridiculous is that most tabs on the internet arent even exact. most of them are interperetations of the songs.

To be honest ultimateguitar's tabs are so off and crappy =/, but i suggest just googling the tab you want, you can usually find a decent version.
