The site isn't making money off printing the lyrics is it? I'd think that as long as the authors are given credit there wouldn't be a problem with posting them for curious fans of the band.

In fact, when I first became a U2 fan and came to this website, reading the lyrics from albums like The Unforgettable Fire, and October made me curious to hear the albums, therefore I bought them. Had I not been moved by the words I may have never bought them. Did they ever think of the free advertising the band is getting by posting their work?

I agree. Complete and utter bullshit.

Hard to say. Interference has run into some copyright issues with both the lyrics and the tabs.

I know Joel is trying to get it sorted out, but for right now, we can't offer them, I guess.

@U2 has had to take down their lyrics as well.

Just a suggestion...... instead of the lyrics link taking you back to the main page, why not go to a page explaining why the lyrics have been (hopefully) temporarily taken down. I think that would cut down on the confusion.
