I'm just curious if the tabs on here make money for the artists and people. That's it really.
#2
UG pays royalties to keep the tabs online I believe, so yes the artits will make money. A

Tabs of what? Acid, no. Paper, yes.

Yes, they are here on UG. That's the only reason it wasn't shut down years ago. A lot of tab sites that didn't have deals like UG does have been shut down though.
Please excuse my godawful username. I was thirteen.

No, by using the tabs you're abusing the artist's music. Criminal.

I thought it was because UG servers are in Russia or some communist country that dgaf about copyright.

How are tabs a copyright infringement? It's like posting lyrics. I don't see what's so bad. Learning how to play the song =/= distributing the song.

Yes, because the site in not within the boundaries of the areas in which the copyrights are reinforced and!!!! because that's what Jesus would do!!!
#25
Yes, and those ads at the top of the page help pay for it. That's why it beeps at you if you use adblock.

Don't use adblock, unless you want UG shut down.

Fixed.

Also, UG's HQ is in California, man. Crazy, huh?!

Because bands have official tab books published and don't want to lose money because of stupid little 13 years olds tabbing out stairway to heaven in the key of f minor.

Most tabs are interpretations not originals, which I believe makes a difference.

Of course, when an entire song is D, A, G, there really isn't all that much room for interpretation and nothing else will sound exactly right so whadyagonnado.

I have bought less guitar books by bands, though, because of UG, so i'd vote yes.
