Dear Ilynov, Are you the typesetter of the Hebrides Overture you uploaded? Let us know as it would be nice to correctly give you credit for your work here. Attribution is a requirement of the Creative Commons License anyway. If you are not the typesetter, you should know that we normally delete typesets that are not posted by their creator. This case is an exception, since we've already had the full score here for some time. Thanks, Carolus 19:28, 23 November 2008 (EST) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)
Thank you for your submission. The upload was successful, but you did not provide enough source and publisher information. Can we kindly ask you to fill in as much information as possible? Correct identification of a score is absolutely needed to make sure a score is in public domain and does not violate copyright laws. Also, this identification reflects IMSLP's strive to quality and completeness.
Please pay attention to the following items:
- Arranger: The person who arranged or transcribed the piece from its original setting into another (an orchestration of a piano work for example). While not always known, arranger's name is often printed on top of the first page (e.g. arranged by... ; in french arrangée par...; in German bearbeitet von... or enrichtet von...). The name and the death date of any arranger or transcriber is most important from a copyright standpoint. Please provide this information if at all possible.
- Editor: The person who edited the score. As with arrangers, the editor's name is usually printed on top of the first page (e.g. edited by... ; in french revue par... or éditée par...; in German bearbeitet von...). This field can concern the original editor, and in case of a recently engraved or typeset score, the engraver (typesetter).
- Scanner:This field should include the name of the scanner, or the website where the file was obtained, with a link to the site. (Preferably using one of our available External library templates).
- Publisher Information: You can find publisher information usually on the bottom of the first pages of the score. The format for this field is as follows: "<City>: <Publisher Name>, Ed. or No.<edition or publication number, if different from plate number>, <Date - use "n.d." if no date is printed on score>. Plate <Plate number>."
More fields are described in the Score submission guide.
You will find a lot of information on the first pages of the score. If you have problems gaining information, more tips and help are provided at IMSLP:Contributing scores and Historical Publication Info. An example of a good submission is Frühlingsrauschen (Sinding, Christian)

Dear Carolus, I have recently found your message to me, sorry for the delay with the answer. In fact I am not the typesetter of the Hebrides, I downloaded it somewhere long time ago, so it is difficult to remember now. It was a cant of mutopia or project gutenberg site. If this can cause problems, then maybe it is necessary to remove the parts?
- Thanks for your response. I'll look into it. Most Mutopia things are OK here. Best Wishes, Carolus 14:29, 20 April 2009 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)
Glad to hear from you! Also, Carolus, as a copyright reviewer - could you please tell me smth. I have the full score to Verdi's Otello, but it is scanned from Ricordi's recent edition, revised etc. This won't be public domain, right?
- The Ricordi score that Dover reprinted for Othello is public domain - it was originally issued around 1920 as I recall. Ricordi reprinted that same score several times, sometimes with a few minor corrections, but not a new copyright claim. If you're referring to the new critical score issued in the late 1980s-1990s, no we can't allow that one here. Carolus 20:58, 20 April 2009 (EDT)
Dear Carolus, it's a great pity - I have the 1980-1990s full score... Maybe next time?..
- Thanks for the Bizet scores!! Nice to have the original Choudens prints. I've been working on getting copies of the Breitkopf scores (or a Dover reprint) to scan, which will go with the parts we have (to appear soon). Carolus 00:20, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
