Hi there,

Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask or if it's a question that is answered elsewhere.

I posted a tab on this site a while ago and I have recently noticed that my work has appeared on other guitar tab websites. I don't remember agreeing to that, but I did only skim through the site terms and conditions.

Is it normal for tabs posted to ultimate-guitar.com to be shared with other sites? Or are the other sites just stealing stuff from this site?

This is the tab btw if anyone is interested, it's easily findable via google because of the typo in the intro sentence: http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/e/edward_sharpe_and_the_magnetic_zeros/home_crd.htm

Other search engines such as 911tabs.com search through Ultimate-Guitar's database. It's not a big deal.

Even if your worst fears are true, UG or any site for that matter couldn't effectively prevent such theft.
