Radiohead fan sites have been asked to remove their lyrics and tabs archives.
Yesterday, two popular Radiohead fan sites, Green Plastic
and At Ease
, were sent this email
by a legal representative of Warner Bros. Publications and Warner/Chappell Music asking them to take down any lyrics and tabs from their site. The letter claimed "their distribution constitutes an infringement of our rights under U.S. Copyright Law. More than that, the availability of these files have a direct impact on our ability to market and sell our musical arrangements and songbooks, and that adversely affects the royalties that we are able to generate and pay to the band." Those opposed have started a petition online
. Who's right on this one?
