who gets paid to search the web for lyrics sites? law school interns?

Why doesn't he just remove the lyrics from bands that are on the label
that is harassing him? No one label can act on behalf of the numerous
record labels out there, unless this is a class action suit against some
guys personal side project by the big record companies.

I don't see how he could be forced to close the entire site down.

(yeah, I'm still paying attention, I just don't have much to say)

but fuck them, anyway. (my stock response)
