Thanks for the thoughts on this, and while pulling the lessons is a sad thing for those who want to learn, it actually did me me favor, because I was spending a pretty penny every year for the links to my server space.
The majority of my lessons included bios, pics, etc, of the guitarist they were about. That was sort of my contribution here. And again, they have been up for some time, which means many folks "DID" benefit from them. That means a lot to me, because it's all about giving back to the younger guitar players. I was taught by others, and this site let me pass it on. Too bad the copyright thing came along, but that's the way it goes.
I don't consider what we do here (concerning tabbing copyright material), breaking any laws, because neither I nor WN profits from it, but again, it's what the law is now.
Anyway, for the betterment, and because WN DIDN"T yank all copyright stuff, I did... I took all my lessons down to keep things cool on all sides. There are still many lessons here which people can learn from, and learn quite well that don't have an artist name on it. Charlie G's lessons come to mind (very good stuff), and he has contributed immensely here. The man should be given a trophy :)
To answer your question, yes I have printed a few of my tabs, so if WN deletes the library, I'll still have some memories of the good old times I spent on that composer!
Keep on a pickin and a learnin
