Hi Sjs1104. Unfortunately, the Milhaud violin sonata you've uploaded will have to be removed as Milhaud is not yet in the public domain in Canada. While some of his works are public domain in the U.S., if they aren't also in Canada they are not permissable on the site. In the future, please be sure to carefully read the submission guidelines and the page on public domain. Thanks. Daphnis 13:39, 4 July 2008 (EDT)

Milhaud appologies

Hi Daphnis, Sorry for the mixup. I thought because it was published in 1917 or thereabouts that it would be public domain because it was pre-1923. No problem though. I will be abit more careful in the future. I have only just recently tried my hand/scanner at contributing to this internet library. Thanks, Steven

Steven, no worries. You are correct about the pre-1923 rule in that it is public domain in the U.S., but only there. And since this site is hosted in Canada, to have a file that is still under copyright on it would be a violation--no matter how much we may like Milhaud. I look forward to your next contributions, however a friendly tip on scanning music: always scan in black & white (a.k.a. monochrome, 1-bit) with the thresholds set for the type of material you're dealing with. Best. Daphnis 00:11, 5 July 2008 (EDT)


Hello Sjs1104, While the two Poulenc titles you posted are free in the USA, they are not public domain in Canada, where IMSLP is hosted. We'll have to remove them, sad to say. We are planning on opening a US server sometime in the future to host works of this nature. Canada's copyright law is really simple to remember: Life of the last surviving author plus 50 years. On Jan. 1, 2009, for example, all of the works of Ralph Vaughan Williams (d.1958) first published in his lifetime will enter the Canadian public domain. Carolus 15:17, 6 July 2008 (EDT)


Hello, I corrected the countertenor template for you. I had to fill in a level - I assumed it is level 4 (professional). --Peter talk 08:41, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

Re: possible scores

Hello, I see that they are still available at [1] and probably also at the Variations project (see IMSLP:Links for the address). I don't know which scan is better. Sorting, splitting and uploading them is unfortunately not one of my priorities right now due to the amount of work involved in IMSLP. --Peter talk 04:56, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
