What’s the line in that song?

That’s what Milun Tesovic wanted to know back in 2000 as he searched online for the lyrics of his favorite tunes. But often, he got results that seemed dubious or could not find the song at all. So a year later, at age 16, he started his own site.

That site, MetroLyrics.com, crept up on search engine results, and before he knew it, he said, checks from advertisers were arriving in the mail and the site “started looking a lot more like a serious business.”..

Seriously? So when is someone going to try and get money out of people who post their thoughts on web forums like this? I mean, really, every word in the English language has to be used at some point, and I imagine that someone somewhere is going to try and copyright them all so we all have to pay. This crap is getting stupider and stupider.
