Please dont tag songs with the artist name, song title, country etc.

What about the lyrics now, can they be readded? Wasn't there reached an agreement with the music industry?

One day I asked for such and the admins said they could now be added, another day much later I asked the same for another entry and they said they can't be added. So, better ask them again before adding anything.

This guy had it removed? What a piece of garbage, copyright laws went too fucking far.

Pretty sure copyright law itself hasn't changed. But yeah, would likely be actually better for copyright holders to not put as much stress on enforcing their copyright towards potential fans - I for one am much more likely to buy something after having read/listened to it.

So all the translations had to be removed, too?

Last time I read a statement from the admins on this, we don't remove them - but it might have changed.
Copyright law of translations is quite complex and differs between countries - as far as I remember, versions of it both include that a translation is its own artistic work and thereby protected by a copyright itself, and that it's derived work and the translator needs to ask for the original author's permission to publish it. Which we obviously don't do.
