BY-NC-ND not acceptable?

Postby rdtennent » Tue May 10, 2016 1:41 pm

Works at http://www.baroquemusic.it have this license. Why is this license not acceptable to IMSLP?

It is acceptable, we have a lot of stuff with this license from baroquemusic.it. But this license is not in the regular list, so it must added manualy.

Added manually by whom? When I tried to submit items, BY-NC-ND was in the list of licences but when I selected it, it was rejected. In any case, the person behind http://www.baroquemusic.it is angry at IMSLP which he regards as a competitor; he'd prefer that his publications were removed from IMSLP.

Choose first any CC license and correct it later manually via the edit button.- We had a discussion some years ago with M. Bolognani and he
accepted the uploads to IMSLP under some conditions about quotings and the license, which we strictly observe.

And yet he prominently displays on his site the terms of the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license, under which his scores are published, which grants everyone the right to "copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format" (provided the material is not modified, not used for commercial purposes, and provide credit to the work's creator). IMSLP's re-hosting of his scores meets the requirements of the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license. If he is not happy with other sites hosting content that he has licensed in that fashion then perhaps he needs to consider not using a CC license because his problem really isn't with IMSLP it's with the nature of the Creative Commons license.
