Thx for the references. We will fix this encoding problem on the next update (as well some other bugs!).

Thought about LyricWiki but LyricsMode had a significantly broader coverage. Ultimately, I'd like to use several providers to get more comprehensive coverage. 

I personally think what DDG is currently doing is fair use in both the traditional sense and via the search engine snippet exception. We're linking to the source (in this case LyricsMode) and only taking paragraph excerpts.
