BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Song sites face legal crackdown

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Song sites face legal crackdown: "The music industry is to extend its copyright war by taking legal action against websites offering unlicensed song scores and lyrics.

The Music Publishers' Association (MPA), which represents US sheet music companies, will launch its first campaign against such sites in 2006.

MPA president Lauren Keiser said he wanted site owners to be jailed."

Okay, this is taking things a bit too far. If you ask me, the MPA and the rest of the recording industry are getting to the point of absurdity. Something tells me this whole thing is going to blow over, just like prohibition. It may take awhile, but it should all go the way of the dodo. Next thing you know, they will go after the poor sods that compose and publish midis.
