+ - user-submitted guitar tabs == infringement?

Submitted by hudster
hudster (1046328) writes "The site all-good-tabs.com has apparently been threatened by legal action due to allegations of copyright infringement. Currently, when attempting to view any of the guitar tabs on the site, the following message is displayed (see example here):

Dear All Good Tabs vistors, All Good Tabs has been threatened with legal action by the National Music Publishers Association and the Music Publishers Association of America. The basis of their position is that by publishing the tabs transcribed by you hard working musicians, we are constituting copyright infringement. We completely disagree with this and are currently investigating our legal options. Click here for an explanation of the publishing company's position, and contact details for you to express your opinions on this matter to them.
