Guitar Tablature Archive?

What happened to the tab archive? The [Tabs} link here on the forums page just redirects to the main page ...

Or is it just me?

I sent an e-mail to one of the people on contacts list; we'll see what happens, I guess.

We've been forced by Universal Publishing to remove the Lyrics Archive and Guitar Archive. Its just a matter of time until they go after the other sites with them as well.

I understand why the lyrics had to be taken off, but why the chords??? there are thousands of guitar chord sites!??!?!

Apparently because U2 signed an exclusive deal with Universal Publishing, and UP has the publishing rights... and the rights to enforce copyright of compositions (which include lyrics and tabs). So unless we, and other fan sites, want to license them for $$$$ they'll all slowly vanish off the net. According to them, even linking to them on another site now violates copyright law as 'distribution' and they are willing to pursue legal action in order to enforce this. lame.

Any possibility of being able to download the entire archive through you-send-it links?

Now, I don't know a whole lot about copyrights or anything, but...

Aren't most of the tabs on the Guitar Archive simply peoples' own interpretations of how the music is played? I could understand if Universal asked that tabs from say, The U2 Songbook were removed. But alot of people spent alot of time figuring out tabs and chords.

Olga.net states that "This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the song." So I'm not sure I understand how Universal can demand that *all* tabs be removed.
