I can understand a tab being copyrighted only if the original creator is the author of the song written. Laying copyright to a tab that you only wrote from a riff/song that was previously published by a musician I don't think can be directly copyrighted. It is an interpretation of how a song is played, again not from the creator of the published material.

Thoughts?

Here is a written doc from a law firm (at least it looks that way)
