You recently submitted a file to Wer weiß, wie nahe mir mein Ende, BWV 27 (Bach, Johann Sebastian). The file you submitted was a recent arrangement, edition, engraving or typeset, in which there is possible copyright although the original composer might be in the public domain. This file will not be accessible and will be deleted in 24 hours or less as a possible copyright violation unless you declare yourself to be the typesetter, provide written permission by the copyright owner to distribute this file on IMSLP, or proof that the file was released under one of the Creative Commons or similar licenses. Please read this page for more information about copyright on IMSLP. You can provide an answer here in the textbox at the bottom of this page, making sure to click on 'save reply' when you are finished.
If the uploaded file was improperly submitted as a "Normal Scan" and/or categorized as public domain, we reserve the right to delete it immediately if there is no evidence provided that you are the typesetter, or that the file was released under a free license as described above. If the file is actually your own work, you can re-upload it as a "(Re)Typeset" and list your own name as "Editor" and as "Publisher" when uploading again. Due to the moral rights provisions of many countries' copyright laws, it is not really possible for you to designate any new work - even your own typeset - as public domain. The simple "Creative Commons Attribution 4.0" is functionally the equivalent of public domain but meets the minimal requirements (attribution) or the moral rights aspect of various copyright statutes. See our Composer Portal page for a detailed explanation of this issue. Despite what detractors of this site say, IMSLP is very serious about obeying copyright laws.

PS: The same applies for the organ obbligato parts uploaded for the other Bach Cantatas. These have been deleted in accordance with our rules mentioned above. If you are the actual creator of these, please resubmit them as "typesets" and list yourself (real name, please) as "editor" and as "Publisher". Thanks, Carolus 05:33, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
Replacing files (for updated versions)
Dear Anna, To replace a file, click on the file number #111111 (six digits now). This will take you to a page where there is a link to "upload a new version of this file". Once your new version is uploaded, you will notice that the copyright tags go to U/U/U again - meaning the item is blocked until a reviewer tags it. Unless you are logged in, you will not see the new version in your browser when you click on the link for the file as it takes the cache a couple of days to update.
