    I have heard that the best things in life are for free.

    No.

    I usually (when i find tough to figure out songs using tabs) download the powertabs files which help me better to figure out the songs as well as learn them with accurate timings. Today, when tried to download a tab file from www.powertabs.net. It had a notice that it has been closed because some damn MPA thinks that they are stealing the copyrights of the songwriter and have sued them. They have made a statement like...

    "Unauthorised use of lyrics and tablature deprives the songwriter of the ability to make a living, and is no different than stealing,"

    oh yeah? how could the songwriter make a living without listeners like us? They are making a living because we listen to their music.

    Isnt this irritating? :annoyed:

    please check the link below for details...
