From Issue:

CBS Interactive Music Group has acquired Vancouver-based online song lyrics aggregator MetroLyrics.com, the most-trafficked lyrics site on the Internet. Indeed, the CBS Interactive Music Group logo now prominently appears on the web site's footer. MetroLyrics' database contains lyrics to more than 700,000 songs, 

MetroLyrics.com

and the site generates nearly 12 million unique users a month in the United States (according to comScore).

Lyrics websites (some very deservedly) carry a reputation as storehouses of unlicensed copyright material and malware. But as TechVibes writes (here), "MetroLyrics was the first lyrics dedicated site in the world to provide its users with a fully licensed database of complete and accurate song lyrics, ensuring artists, songwriters and music publishers are properly compensated for the use of their copyrighted work."
