It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Misc. Comments

Deposited Feb. 3, 1877 at the British Museum as The Celebrated Chop Waltz, composed by Arthur de Lulli (pseudonym of Euphemia Allen) aranged as duet and solo for piano and published by Mozart Allen, Glasgow and Howard & Co., London. In the same year, Alexander Borodin's daughter played four measures of music similar to the first part of this piece, which served as a basis for a set of variations composed by Borodin, Cui, Liadov which was published under the title Paraphrases on the Coteletten Polka by A. Büttner in 1878 or 1879. An additional variation was later contributed by Franz Liszt. James Fuld has speculated that both works might share a common, earlier source, which has not yet surfaced.
