Re: Upcoming changes

I was surprised and angered to see the new subscription system on IMSLP. This was incorporated suddenly and without community discussion beforehand. Since we have a huge number of active patrons and volunteers visiting this library, I was mystified as to why there was not extensive consultation on t...

Interesting article on new editons of PD works in Canada

Hi All, I thought I would pass this along from the CANMUS-L. An interesting article on Canadian copyright law as it pertains to printed music was brought to my attention to our copyright librarian, so I thought I would share: Laroche, Guillaume, "Settling the Score: Copyright in Modern Editions...

500000 downloads per day?

I see that we have cracked the half-million mark

Number of downloads for Aug 03, 2015: 505947

Was that just a counter glitch or did it really happen? Also... does this total include all the servers (EU, CA, USA, ... )? Thanks.

USA copyright warnings at cross purposes

Many pages have a USA copyright warning at the top of the page - saying that it is unlikely the work is PD. This warning cannot be changed - it seems to be a system message that remains even after someone has searched for the copyright registration and found the work to be likely PD or certainly not...

Re: MLA Conference, Atlanta, USA Feb 26-Mar 2

I wish to thank all those who attended the ''IMSLP Conversation over Lunch'' at the MLA Conference. It was a pleasure to meet face-to-face some of the poeple I had only known as a friendly 'alias' on these forums. Discussion topics were sheet music scanning methods and quality, the Sibley Mirroring ...

Re: Music publisher catalogs

Are they treated as simple data (i.e. not really copyrightable) or perhaps an artistically chosen repertoire (copyrightable). Also, is there any interest in hosting the catalogue excerpts that one u...

Use of Wikitable on normal page

I am trying to use a table within our standard #fte:imslppage template. No luck so far. Is there a special way to do this? I am trying to link multiple work pages from a collection page. The page will end up much smaller if I can use a table, rather than bullet points (which do work fine). Thanks.

The scans on the DIAMM website are some of the best I have ever seen. The works available are treasures indeed. Many of them consider tha...
