Making Music More Enjoyable? Not Allowed!
from the lyrics-are-evil.... dept
Among the many clueless things the recording industry has done over the past few years is freak out over people daring to (oh my!) put lyrics online. We've written about a few cases where lyrics sites were forced to shut down due to angry recording industry lawyers, who somehow seem to think that putting up lyrics that make it easier for music fans to enjoy songs is damaging to the industry. It appears that this is still happening, as a bunch of lyrics sites in Germany are being threatened by the recording industry for writing out the lyrics of various songs. It would be interesting to see exactly how the industry thinks they're losing money by having people write out song lyrics online.
