Publishers strike wrong chord with musicians

A court battle would mean legal costs of at least $250,000, and it's possible high damages could be awarded if OLGA lost, said Cathal Woods, a philosophy professor at Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk, Virginia, who became OLGA's caretaker in 1994. So rather than fight, OLGA folded.

...
At its peak, OLGA drew about 1 million visitors a month in 1998 and 1999, Woods said. The NMPA and the Music Publishers' Association (MPA) assert U.S. copyright law forbids the distribution of transcriptions or even arrangements that are somewhat similar to the copyright work, making even inaccurate tabs illegal. It wasn't OLGA's first legal encounter. In 1996, EMI Music Publishing complained when OLGA was hosted on servers at the University of Las Vegas. The university gave OLGA the boot. Faced with moving to a commercial hosting service, OLGA started taking advertising on its site and sold T-shirts to cover costs, Woods said. "We've never treated it as an income-generating stream," Woods said.
...
But OLGA been widely purloined, Woods said, and many Web sites have replicated the archives.
...
Woods charges the publishers have only recently embraced the Internet, and while some new sites have innovative software, it's not enough to satisfy users. "They've been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century," Woods said.
