Alba Rosa Vietor

Hi Mary van Veen-Vietor. Do you have permission to upload these typesets of her works here? If not, I'm afraid they will have to be deleted, as her works are under copyright in most of the world and any new typeset is under copyright everywhere. Thanks, KGill talk email 20:45, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

It would appear that Mary is a member of the Foundation (see linked website), so I expect it's OK. Carolus 00:11, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I (or rather the Alba Rosa Vietor Foundation, which I chair and on behalf of which I'm uploading here) am/is the copyright holder for all of Alba Rosa Vietor's works. Most of it has never been publised before but the ARV Foundation, together with the copyright for ARV's works, inherited digital versions of, basically, all of those works from Alba's son Hendrik, who died in 2010. Over time, we intend to upload most of those to your site, and I just added 3 new compositions of ARV. See - Mary van Veen-Vietor, 31 Jan 2012

Creative Commons Licenses

Dear Composer or Copyright Owner,

Welcome to IMSLP/Petrucci Music Library! As a composer or other copyright proprietor, please take time to carefully review the Creative Commons and Performance Restricted licenses including the full licenses in PDF format. Generally speaking, the best version to employ for new works is either the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 4.0 or the Performance Restricted Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0. These allow for free downloading of the items you post, yet prohibits anyone who downloads the files from IMSLP from selling the files (on Ebay, for example), or from giving public performances on an explicitly commercial basis, making recordings of the work without written permission in advance from you, the composer and copyright owner. However, if you are affiliated with a performing rights society such as SOCAN (Canada), ASCAP, BMI or SESAC (USA), SACD, SACEM or SEAM (France), SABAM (Belgium), GEMA (Germany), PRS (UK), SGAE (Spain), SIAE (Italy), Artisjus (Hungary), ZAIKS (Poland), IPRS (India), JASRAC (Japan), or any of the myriad of similar agencies present in this Wikipedia listing, please note that at least some of these agencies refuse to honor the Creative Commons licenses. You should therefore seriously consider using one of the several IMSLP Performance Restricted Licenses for any works posted here if you are affiliated with a performance rights society.

For those uploading the first time, please remember choose the menu option "Add Your Own Composition" when uploading your original works (even if they are scans of manuscripts or printouts), "Add Your Own Arrangement" or "(Re)Typeset" when uploading new arrangements, and "Add Your Own Edition" or "(Re)Typeset" when uploading new editions of public domain works. As it is normally assumed that composers and arrangers have edited their own work, please leave the "Editor" field empty unless another person has actually edited your work (in which case their name should be inserted). Note also that the English term "Editor" is not the equivalent of the French editeur or Italian editore. "Editor" refers to the person who reviewed and corrected the piece, while the French and Italian words are closer to the English word "publisher". In the "Publisher" field, please use your own full legal name, as making your scores and sound files available for free download on this site constitutes "publication" under the laws of most countries in the world. (Note that this is done automatically when using the new upload tools). Please do not list your works as "public domain" as it is not legally possible for your works to be fully public domain under the 'moral rights' provisions of many copyright statutes around the world. Composers and other copyright owners should be aware that Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 is very similar to public domain as it allows for the unrestricted copying, performance (live and broadcast) and recording of the work (including explicitly commercial use) at no charge, with no compensation or royalties payable to the composer or copyright owner for such commercial exploitation. Note also that the all of the above licenses are considered to be IRREVOCABLE once a file has been uploaded under the lawful copyright owner's authorization.

PS: As long as you have not actually inserted a particular Creative Commons license in the PDF file itself, you are free to change the license after upload to something more suitable. However, any restrictions under an updated license are only applicable to copies of the files downloaded after the date of amendment. Copies downloaded before amendment date are likely subject to the original license terms, so please choose carefully. Composers are also encouraged to make use of our new template {{NoPerf}}, which automatically places works into a new category - Unperformed Works. To add this template to your pages, simply copy and paste the little template above (curly brackets and all) into the "First Performance" field of the "General Information" section on all work pages.

Best Wishes,

Carolus 00:11, 26 May 2011 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

Superfluous work pages for the same piece, etc.

Dear Mary, Please put all movements of a suite or similar multi-movement work on the same page. Creating multiple pages for the same work requires considerable clean-up time. In looking at the list of works linked on Vietor's composer page, I noticed that the Bluebird Suite exists for both piano and orchestra. There will only be one page for the work, and both versions will go on it. If the piano version was written first, the orchestration should go under the "Arrangements and Transcriptions" tab on the same page. If the orchestral setting was first, the piano version is counted as the arrangement. Here are a few other things that will save time for everyone concerned when you upload:

  1. The English-language term "full score" is normally use only for scores of at least 3 staves or more. It is not used for keyboard music, vocal music, or choral music (unless accompanied by orchestra or ensemble). Use "Complete Score" if it is a single-section work, or the name of the individual movement if a multi-movement work, as with Little Suite.
  2. The "Editor" field refers to the person who edited the music, not the publisher. If these are the same, leave the editor field empty as it is assumed the publisher had some supervision over the production of the engraved scores such as those you have been posting.
  3. Please use a shorter version or abbreviation of your name in the uploader field, as you now can see on the page for Little Suite. We would prefer that the uploader credit not break into 2 lines (which is a little problem with our system).
  4. In the General Information section, duration should be average duration, not a precise duration. A work of 2 minutes, 45 seconds would be listed as "2-3 minutes". Note in the cleaned-up Little Suite page also the format in which the date of first performance is given, how the individual movements are listed.
