I will repeat that I'm not sure about this, but it is of interest, as I've heard otherwise about urtext editions. Since urtext is an exact copy of the original manuscript actually there has been huge work in copying, but no real editing, nothing added. So I would assume that, while yes I agree edito...

I am not 100% sure but: from wiki: An urtext edition of a work of classical music is a printed version intended to reproduce the original intention of the composer as exactly as possible, without any added or changed material. Under this idea, an urtext edition is uncopyrighted if the music itself i...

Kalli, I would imagine that the copyright holds on when the score was published. Music might be copyright free, there doesn't seem to be any doubt about it, but even Beethoven Sonatas come at copyrighted publications (which happens if the scores have been edited, and not merely copied in URTEXT). At...

Mr. Black: I'm sorry to say but you very first post here revealed such a biased character I haven't expressed an opinion on whether the law as it stands, internationally, is fair and just because that doesn't seem to me the issue. If you want to get the law changed you might just as easily find me ...

If you still want to discuss it, after I said 2 times I'm sorry about this comment, here is what the point I was trying to make: Odin, you mentioned being prepared for war, and being strong so that the others will leave you alone. If by any chance IMSLP is wrong, exactly as Hitler was, then what exa...

First of all @Kali: You're German??? I deeply appologize for my post and take back this example. It was just an example, please don't keep it in your mind. I actually don't fancy examples from history, and generally examples are there as exaclty that: examples, not arguments. Please exept my deepest...

Kali, You speak the truth in many issues indeed. And I agree on those issues (that UE will not be the last, etc, etc). But watch the small difference: You are discussing war, etc and prepare for battle to live in peace. but you forget the legallity of the situations which matters greatly. A simple e...

Odin, Certainly, and I didn't mean to imply that you are damaging IMSLP in any way, just that the center of attention has been shifted to where it should not be right now (in my very personal opinion of course). Sadly, I am someone who tends to understand all positions, so I know that this copyright...

Re: Don´t yield

Don´t yield to UE and to their demands, make them yield to you and to your demands. They started the fight, they must surrender or be defeated. So this is a battle for you? I'm sorry but you seem hugely more interested in the copyright laws than actually resolving the situation (= reopning IMSLP), ...

I've been following this thread and the forums rather closely, and I'm sadden to se IMSLP closed for differnt reasons than those of the letter (Which was rather simple to implement actually). No man should be bothered with any wording from any lawyer. Lawyers are scums! End of story! (and I have rel...

Copyright is the ONLY thing for artists (and mainly composers). Plus there are 2 different issues between copyrights really, one needs to consider: A. not copy (pirate) a music track. This is what UE is afraid of. B. Not to actually copy the music and use it as your own. But do keep in mind that com...

Odin, I'm a composer, finishing my PhD in composition. So I care deeply for what happens with copyright laws. As it happens I have 2 sons, aged 4 and 2 right now. I'm studying and don't have money/store/anything really to leave them. I would certainly love for my kids to hold copyright of MY music. ...

misunderstanding maybe?

Ok! I just saw an exchange of letters between various people and the replies of UE... Now I reread the letter and saw the following part: It is our understandingth at it is possiblet o filter lP addresseso f those who take part in copying files from your site to prevent such unauthorized copyright i...
