Re: Upcoming changes

IGranted, all of this moot, if Ed's goal is to make money. He's allowed to do that. It's his vision, his site, and his alone. I just wish he'd quit pretending he's providing a wonderful, magnanimous service, lol. Imagine Ed on the gold course, talking to his buddies: "I just sit back whilst th...

Re: Upcoming changes

IMSLP is purely a technical platform. It does not need a single person to be paid to do anything, unless, or until, the copyright issues become a central tenet of its operation. Even so, that has already been dealt with, and volunteer members have picked up that slack, calling themselves "Copyr...

Re: Upcoming changes

Why am I bringing up these numbers? I think in all the emotional discussions in this thread there lacks a certain quantitative aspect to put things in perspective, which I think also helps explain a bit of my thinking process and why I reached the conclusion I did. A major difference between Wikipe...

Re: Upcoming changes

IMSLP is merely a convenience on my life's Grande Schema. It's not indispensable. For some, I suppose IMSLP *is* indispensable, and they'll be happy to pay for the subscription. My days of "indiscriminate daily browsing" are over, since I'm not keen on the 2-3 day wait. (Which is it? Is th...

Re: Upcoming changes

So, now I got to a "members only" file. No 15 second wait. Fully denied unless I'm a member. This is exactly what I was afraid of. Subscription only. Good luck with your new endeavor. In good time, I'm sure a new, free, charitable website will be developed to "compete" with imslp...

Re: Upcoming changes

My issue isn't "waiting a few seconds." With modern browsers, I can just click my target in imslp, then open another tab and read some news until I'm compelled to retrieve my PDF. (I already use ad-block-plus to hide all ads) My issue is with the reported "mission" of imslp as a ...

Re: Upcoming changes

Sadly, I knew this day had to come. Is imslp.org a charity? Are there any tax form 990s filed under imslp.org's name? So far, I can only dig up the fact that imslp.org is owned by a private company, Project Petrucci LLC. Are there any public tax filings, or balance sheets? I'd really like to get to ...
