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,

Zach, Jan

Are you the editor or publisher of the score for Jan Zach Konzert für orgel und Orchester Partitur? We need the permission of the copyright owner to include this score on the site, otherwise it will be deleted within 24 hours. Regards — P.davydov 18:24, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Descriptions

Please do not repeat the title of works for file descriptions. Likewise, kindly refrain from pasting the long biography in German on Zimpel's category page. It is already available and easily linked on the discussion page. Thanks, Carolus 04:40, 27 September 2011 (UTC) (IMSLP Admin)

Typesets

Dear Contributor,

You recently submitted a file to Kleine Passionsmusik (Loewe, Carl). The file you submitted was a recent arrangement, edition, engraving or typeset, in which there is possible copyright although the original composer might be in the public domain. This file will not be accessible and will be deleted in 24 hours or less as a possible copyright violation unless you declare yourself to be the typesetter, provide written permission by the copyright owner to distribute this file on IMSLP, or proof that the file was released under one of the Creative Commons or similar licenses. Please read this page for more information about copyright on IMSLP. You can provide an answer here in the textbox at the bottom of this page, making sure to click on 'save reply' when you are finished.

If the uploaded file was improperly submitted as a "Normal Scan" and/or categorized as public domain, we reserve the right to delete it immediately if there is no evidence provided that you are the typesetter, or that the file was released under a free license as described above. If the file is actually your own work, you can re-upload it as a "(Re)Typeset" and list your own name as "Editor" and as "Publisher" when uploading again. Due to the moral rights provisions of many countries' copyright laws, it is not really possible for you to designate any new work - even your own typeset - as public domain. The simple "Creative Commons Attribution 4.0" is functionally the equivalent of public domain but meets the minimal requirements (attribution) or the moral rights aspect of various copyright statutes. See our Composer Portal page for a detailed explanation of this issue. Despite what detractors of this site say, IMSLP is very serious about obeying copyright laws.

Thank you.
Best regards,
