If these Schubert autograph manuscripts, sketches and letters are out of copyright, shouldn't they be PD and be free of charge? Granted, each page is scanned and perhaps digitally enhanced and service and labour charges are applied. But for 8 euros per page? And at only 300dpi? The same thing occur...

Re: is there a timetable/roadmap?

Would it be possible to establish a newsletter, that informs the subscribers, when imslp.org is online again? You can be sure it will be announced here and on every outlet I have access to (er... my blog and the lilypond list :-) ), and I'm sure others will be vocal as well. That said, an announcem...

This is another good reason for IMSLP to set up as a non-profit corporation. If we had a reasonable budget, volumes like these could be purchased, carefully disbound, scanned, rebound and resold at a reduced price (as "used") at Abebooks, Amazon Marketplace, etc. And IMSLP could potential...

I don't know what the site looked like previous to the takedown. Would you like it if I designed a drupal site for this? The site previously used Mediawiki software; I think the plan is to continue with the same (although there were several project working on prettifying the mediawiki templates and...

If you are still looking at purchasing, I would highly recommend Dover's edition: http://store.doverpublications.com/0486233766.html. With shipping and handling, probably around $25 for all 6.

And, again, there were no 'copyright issues'; just harassment. :-)
