Hi - I'm relatively new here, but it occurred to me to ask whether or not, when I post a tab, I retain ownership of it? Am I free to remove it if I so choose? And, if so, how does one go about doing it?

Thanks,

t says you published it, but by rights its the ownership of UG i believe, like if you published a book.

and technically since its a tab of a song, some rights go to the artist too, and if this site were based in the US it wouldnt exist because of that.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

change it? yes, with approval.
remove it? not easily.

Tabs are Contributed. So yes, control of them goes to UG.

not really. the tabs are your interpretation of how the song is played. The song itself will always be owned by the artist and record label. but your work via tablature in describing how to play that song is not the same as composing the song.

Tabs are not normally removed.
If you wish to remove a Tab you uploaded, contact aig91, emad, or Fox-x-x.
