"U.S. digital entertainment company Gracenote on Thursday said it obtained licenses to distribute lyrics as music publishers mulled legal action against Web sites that provide them without authorization."Ka-ching, baby.
I honestly have no problem with those malware-infested commercial lyrics sites getting sued. I do have a problem when labor-of-love fansites with guitar tabs and lyrics are asked to pull down the lyrics. Let's hope the powers that be show a little more restraint than they have done in the past. [suppressed laughter]
On a somewhat related note, anyone here old enough to remember buying music magazines (particularly "The Sun" and "JetSet") for lyrics? How about buying those little booklets by a publisher called "Archies" (which then went on to become a landmark institution for lovesick teenagers looking for greeting cards, roses and stuffed toys. Ugh.)
Anyone knows the words to this one?
