Shosta may be a bit difficult to have scores of... as much as I'd like to have mroe of him.

Well... once you manage to convince the Shostakovich estate to license Shostakovich scores under a Creative Commons license I bet many people would be willing to scan them :)

Until then, probably not.

Maybe this is slightly off topic, but I have a question: are there any major compoers whose works are Close to coming into the public domain? Anyone to look forward to getting over the next couple years? I'm just curious.

:)

I'll chime in on this celebratory thread, here!

I'm very pleased to participate in this project - I've long wished for a centralized place to make all PD music available. Over the years I've shared a lot of PD organ music with friends, even posted and hosted some on my own server. It's been fun to see some of that music appear now on this site (a fair number of organ pieces from the MIT project were my scans!)

I've also been long irritated at the draconian and complicated morass that is the US copyright law... I wish we'd just simplify and do either the 50 or 70-year rule like most other countries. I have a hunch that th internet (and sites like IMSLP and its growing collection) could very likely spark a revolution in copyright law - I certainly hope so.

Cheers,

Giwro

I've just logged on to find that there is 11,002 scores now!

Keep up the good work! This site is getting better all the time.

If I survive the next 3 days at work I will have a couple of weeks to upload some more Schubert-Lieder.
