We are all aware of the RIAA jihad against their customers and the MPAA taking on those who share illegal copies of movies. In December of last year, we reported about the lyric sites being shutdown.
Now, the tablature, or more commonly known as tab, sites are under attack. It appears that the first to fall is the well known Online Guitar Archive (OLGA). OLGA has been around for a long time and was a collection of tab created by many different individuals. The users created tab by listening or playing the music and then recording what they perceived to be the correct sequence of playing of the instrument. While the authors of the tab relied on their own interpretations, the music publishers have claimed that the creation of the tab is a violation of copyrights held by the music authors.
