Dear Keaton,

Do you have daniwellP's permission to a) arrange his piece for percussion ensemble; and b) post it here under "Anonymous"? Please let us know as soon as possible since this will be deleted as a possible copyright violation if we have no response in 24 hours or less. Thanks, Carolus 04:35, 21 July 2011 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

Dear Carolus,

I do not have daniwellP's expressed permission to arrange his piece. Youtube user Zorsy released a public domain piano score on his personal website of the portion of daniwellP's song used in Youtube user saraj00n's video "Nyan Cat". I downloaded the score, got very bored, and made the percussion ensemble. I wanted to put the score I arranged online, in hopes that some group would be able to have fun with it, at least. This is also the reason why I put it under "Anonymous". Since I don't know Zorsy's real name, I can't create a page for him and give him credit for the original score I used. I also didn't want to put it under "daniwellP", because the Youtube video that this arrangement is from doesn't use his full song, it just loops 11 measures of it. If I had made a page for myself, I wouldn't have anything else to put onto my page, and since I have taken no formal classes about theory or composition at all, probably wouldn't have a chance to for a few more years. I figured, by throwing it under "Anonymous", I could give credit to everybody for all of their work, and avoid problems like these. I had the best intentions, but if my arrangement will cause problems, by all means, take it down; I just don't want to keep this to myself.

-Keaton P.s. I apologize if this is not the correct format to answer you, but I've never been in a situation like this before.

Hi Keaton,
Unfortunately, the issue at hand is not really whether credit is given to all those involved - if you did not obtain permission from whoever wrote the original work, then I'm afraid it has to be removed, since it is very much under copyright. Let us know if you do get permission :-) Cheers, KGill talk email 01:01, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
