Replacing files

Dear Peter,

It's been a while since you've uploaded things here, so I thought we'd let you know about replacing files. To replace a file, just click on the file number (the little 5-digit number next to the download arrow). This will take you to the page for the file itself, from which you just follow the link to upload a new version. It will overwrite your existing file, though you might not see it on your screen until the page cache is updated in a couple of days.

Carl Sandburg

Do you have permission to upload songs with text by him here? His work is under copyright in Canada until 2018. Thanks, Carolus 22:24, 19 March 2012 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

Sorry; please delete the "Four prairie songs by Sandburg", and I will re-submit this in 2018.

Dear Carolus:

I'm sorry to bother you with this beginner's error. I got the texts from Project Gutenberg, and thus assumed they were public domain. However, I accept that Canadian law governs IMSLP. Will you block/delete this submission, or do I have to delete it myself?

I will try to remember to resubmit it in 2018.

Dear Peter, Thanks - I'll go ahead and delete. Only admins can really delete things so it's best if I take care of it. I suspected it was an issue of the text being free in the USA only. Carolus 23:45, 19 March 2012 (EDT)
