Might Be Forced to Shut Down

It was an April Fools joke... we're not really shutting down =P

I have some sad news to report today. I just received a letter in the mail from Nintendo of America, Inc. saying that they have been monitoring this site for some time, and have gathered a great amount of evidence of intellectual property rights violations for distributing "unlicensed" music notation and MP3 files. Essentially it's a cease and desist order, which means that if I don't shut down the site they will take further legal action on me.

I've already contacted a lawyer of my own to see what my options are about this whole thing. I realize it's just me against a mega-corporation like Nintendo, but I can't let this thing go without a fight and I'm going to explore every legal possibility before I take the site down.

ha ha! well played! I was thinking of creating a story about a Gametabs special guitar collection that would have tabs that aren't available on the site for the low price of $29.99. I was gonna put together a huge playlist and everything. And end it with a pic of Kabuki and me on a CD entitled, "Videogame music for two guitars" pre-order now! But this is much better.

You should still go through

You should still go through with that ron, haha. You and Kabuki should form a video game music classical guitar playing duet. You'd be famous I tell ya! You could sell your CDs and merchandise on this site. Seriously there's enough talent in the video game music world to do that kind of thing.

Why do people do it on the

Why do people do it on the day everyone expects it? It was nice with the thumbnail though.

The sad thing is that one

The sad thing is that one day you might indeed get a cease and desist from someone.

Let's hope not, the way all

Let's hope not, the way all these other tab sites have been dropping like flies the past year. Watch Nintendo start taking notice just because of this article. Wouldn't that be ironic?

Nintendo can't do smack, as

Nintendo can't do smack, as long as you don't violate their laws and sell the tabs. Nice April fools gag, though ;)

If that was the case, no tab

If that was the case, no tab sites would've had to shut down. None of them were selling tabs.
