DT Lyrics:

From: Q (Frank Staplin)
Date: 26 Dec 08 - 04:13 PM

The best source for lyrics in French, ABC de la Chanson Francophone, with more than 30,000 texts, has been suspended by Court order at the demand of CSDEM (music publishers syndicate) for violating provisions of the Code de la Propriété Intellectuelle (intellectual properties).

The action is being fought, but I understand that all lyrics and all versions under international copyrights probably will have to be removed.

This was a handy site for all of the lyrics by Brel, Piaf and all French singers and composers of popular song. will report on any progress.

Shite! I hope they are able to put it back online. I love that site! My Rog and I have had a lot of fun listening and singing along, though my pronunciation sucks.:-) Thanks, Q, for the link and the news.

The last post of this forum thread (in French) is from the webmaster of the site. He says the lawyers are trying to find an agreement about the "past wrongs", not necessarily about a future edition. So we'll probably have to wait SOOOOOOOOOME time for the site to be back on line if ever...
