TuneWiki and the removed lyrics

Put yourself in my situation: sick as shit, just wanna listen to some tunes on Spotify. Hmm, I can't quite catch what they're singing. I'll just click the TuneWiki button.


As it turns out, someone actually did the conscious effort of having lyrics for several songs removed. And it's not just a few songs, it's for entire albums from popular performers like Lady Gaga and Backstreet Boys. The lyrics, removed.

I strongly wish to meet the meatheads who decided this is a monetary benefit. Because it truly baffles me. Usually, one can find some form of logic reasoning behind these annoyances (such as music videos taken down from Youtube). The corporate circle of life must go on. But I would love to hear how this insane form of copyright math really goes down.
