News: Continuation of IMSLP

Postby imslp » Sun Oct 21, 2007 10:04 pm

Due to the request of an IMSLP admin, I'm going to give an update of the situation here on the forums (in addition to the main site; do check the main site every so often). :)

Basically, negotiations are planned between an organization and me regarding the continuation of IMSLP. Another IMSLP contributor has already had contact with the organization regarding this matter, but I have yet to speak with the organization in person (this is scheduled to happen during the next week). I also have a few other routes and offers for help, and will try to combine them so that we have something good :)

But no, IMSLP is not dead, and it will not be dead if I can help it.

Perhaps I am being a little melodramatic here, but the action of UE reminds me of nothing so much as the BURNING OF THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA.

Without wishing to muddy the waters, perhaps some arrangement could be established whereby UE can sell their editions as an affiliate to IMSLP?

It bares reseblences, but hating EU will not help. I disagree with feld that UE are in music because they love it (while it is possible they started like that) but I dont wish to start an argument.
