First and foremost, this project has been my love and obsession for the past few months since I discovered it. It pains me to think that people will no longer have the opportunity to participate in this wonderful idea which enriches the lives of all who live in the world, by enabling those who could not otherwise afford the ridiculous cost of sheet music to obtain said music and share the beauty of it with others.

On a selfish note..........what happens to all the music that was posted on here????? What about works published, say, before 1875 when there is no possible way that they cannot be in the public domain? Is all the music, like, gone? I'm kicking myself for not saving this entire site through Teleport Pro or a similar program. I had never gotten around to it, and now it's too late. Is there any way just to take down the disputed works? But I guess that was already explained... ARRRRRRGH!

I only just received the news. I am devastated.

I will certainly be thinking twice before patronising UE again.

Deliberations and discussions are being held for various reasons and with various people/organisations regarding the future of IMSLP, I apologise for closing this thread, which under normal circumstances would be a legitimate thread. However, the current status of IMSLP is not normal, and is quite frankly slightly unstable. It is because of this I need to close all threads with a similar topic as to stop the forum from flooding in such times.

Apologies again,
AW7
