Attention Guitarists!! @ 02:10 pm

clayboy103177:
Can anyone direct me to the best place where they have tabs for How to dismantle an atomic bomb? Ive already checked out u2star.com but they are not that good.
Whatever happened to the U2 guitar archive? Supposedly it merged with Interference.com but I cant find it anywhere.

The same with all the sites that contain lyrics.
God knows what has happened, but the band seem to becoming very unfriendly to fans of late. :-/

1) Chances are these actions were not initiated by the band members but by the label.

2) If the copyright owner does not actively protect their copyright, they can lose it; so in many ways, the label is looking after themselves and the band. Until one or both agree that things like lyrics and tabs should be available for free and/or without license, then you can't really blame either for taking these sorts of actions.

How can you be so sure? Of course the label will want to protect their interest. But how do you know for sure that it wasn't one of the band, Paul McG etc that asked for that action to be taken?
Several bands on the same label, have fansites that have not had this action been taken against them. Makes you wonder.
