Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue

Hi, I just noticed that a full score was posted. Grofe, whose orchestration was uploaded, died in 1972. As I understand it, this means the score in question is likely not PD in Canada until Jan. 1, 2023. Unless Canadian law treats "derivative works" as mere adjuncts of the principal work, ...

I also just noticed that the link to the downloadable scans is working at Gutenberg again. It automatically bounced to the main sheet music page for about the last year, which is why I looked up the archive on the way-back machine. They appear to have scanned a number of Dover scores for some works,...

I think Feldmahler has to move the non-PD in Canada scores to a USA server. There is a "1923 template" you can use when you upload or edit the article for a piece. See Grainger's "Sherpherd's Hey" for how it should appear. Perhaps a 1923 upload page could be set up? Early Stravin...

This composer lived a long time (died in the 1980s I think). Kudos to Goldberg988 for posting them, BTW, they're really interesting. I think you'll have to make sure they get moved to the USA server, where they are public domain.

Reprint Publishers

It would be a difficult case to argue that a mere title page is protectable by copyright unless the title page incorporated a design that is copyrightable in its own right as artwork like the Picasso drawing that graced the cover of Stravinsky's Ragtime when first published. However, corporate names...

Featured Score nominations

Goldberg988 has uploaded several scores recently that have very high quality scans. I'll go ahead and jump in to nominate his Balakirev Piano and Orchestra uploads for starters. There are plenty of good ones here, and I'm just thinking off the top of my head at the moment!

Bad upload

I attempted to upload Act 2 of the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta "Ruddigore" but was rebuffed by the system. I have a smaller, easier to handle version of the file I initially tried to upload whenever the old one is purged. Thanks.

The Producers

The Producers is very much under copyright worldwide. It would be illegal for IMSLP to post a score without express written permission from the copyright owner. Sorry. We have to stick to public domain works here.
