I remember a blog post on HN a while back that discussed music notation and explained how music sheet setting is less deterministic than one might think, and how there is a big difference between good and bad setting, even if the content (the music) is the same.

This is the background story from two days ago:
Ok, I watched the video and his rationale for why his guitar tabs were "fair use":
1) he wrote out the tabs himself instead of copying them from a copyrighted book and
2) he wasn't making any direct money by selling the tabs themselves; however he also acknowledges was getting indirect money via Youtube monetization of the videos that displayed the tabs on screen
Unfortunately, he was naive and probably wasn't aware of history. Back in the USENET days, the famous OLGA On-line Guitar Archive was previously shutdown even though the guitar tabs contributions were made by volunteers for no money.
He was playing with copyright fire and didn't know it.
The problem is the same as all legal stuff these days be it patents or whatever.
Who has the money decides what is fair and what goes. Everyone else, however much of a case or point they have, tough luck.
In the first video he mentioned over and over that was wasn’t profiting, but now it turns out that he is profiting through Youtube monetization. That’s a huge difference.
