Thanks, PoppaGator

I wonder, does this have implications for the current legal dispute involving various free guitar tab sites. Appears they are being sued for publishing 'other people's music' (or so they claim). But how can a guitar tab for a dulcimer song breach any copyright? Guitar tabs like the one I posted don't even have note lengths on, or specify the tuning, so the essential components of musical notation (pitch and duration) aren't there.

Worth a new thread or am I being picky (pardon the pun)..?
