The New York Times Bob Tedeschi reports:

In the last few months, trade groups representing music publishers have used the threat of copyright lawsuits to shut down guitar tablature sites, where users exchange tips on how to play songs like “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” “Highway to Hell” and thousands of others.

Once again, the big record labels who do little or nothing to actually produce music, want to squeeze every penny out of their ownership of the music they don’t write, perform or understand.
