Writing Down Guitar Chords Legal Again, With Royalties

Internet sites hosting guitar chords and tabliture (two simplified notations that are extremely useful to hobby players [such as myself, caveat reader]) have been illegal in the U.S. under copyright grounds for a while now. I personally believe that this falls under the reverse engineering provision, but I'm not a lawyer. There will soon be a site hosted in the U.S. again, but they will be paying royalties to the labels.
