I noticed that many filed are blocked.

Will they soon be un-blocked. Many great composers file are blocked and its saddening.

If you mean the copyright review notice, then in does explain it on the notice.

But I'm glad I was wrong!

You guys rock.... I tested out your donation page... it works!... Everybody else (who isn't contributing otherwise) should drop by. BTW, how do I know you got the money?

Thanks again,
Bobby

Dear Feldmahler, admins, copyright-reviewers, supporters,

congratulations on bringing the IMSLP/Petrucci Music Library back online!

I'm eager to figure out what has changed and to update my composer page as soon as possible. It's relieving that the "Performance Restricted Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives 1.0" special license still exists. Thank you especially for that :-)

Congratulations!!again.....but may be for my distraction or may be I have not read all posts ...... I did not understand a thing.The question is this:
How will you face the threat of a sue? Who will defend imslp?Who will give legal support to imslp? I understand that these may be confidential things and I undestand if you don't want to answer......
Thank'you again
Bravi bravi!!!
Ciao

welcome back!

a most hearty congratulations to all involved on a job well done bringing imslp back on-line. the joy of reading a score for music as it is performed is a pleasure for me. watching the unfortunate drama unfold, and then following the unyielding commitment to address appropriately all concerns to allow imslp back is an example for all.

bravo! Bravo!! BRAVO!!!

It is great that IMSLP is back online. I am sure in the next few weeks many things shall be sorted out as we go along. Congratulations!

Wow, I'm glad I decided to go slow on the uploading after the opening...

I'm truly impressed by the cracking pace at which works are being added. And a wide range of interesting and important works, too.

At this rate, later today we should reach the 17,000 score mark.

Keep up the good work, everybody!

It's almost going to need a full-time person just to patrol the wish-list and check off things as they are added.

I'll try to stick my head in occasionally when I can, but I have this boring thing called work that keeps getting in the way. :(

And hats off to our hard-working copyright review team, who are working as hard as they can to check things so they can be downloaded.

You mentioned a copyright review team that I suppose is currently working through the blocked files to verify copyright status...

Is there some way that they can post their progress, perhaps a percentage statistic of files verified?

Or perhaps is there some way that I can join the effort?

I didn't understand one thing.

For example Carl Reineceke all his files are available to download and when i downloaded his 24 etudes the last 10 had a copyright review. Why can't the whole score just be available?
