This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition is in the public domain because it was published at least 25 years ago for most of the EU (20 years ago in Italy, 30 years ago in Poland) over 25 years ago for the former USSR. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere.

The dedicatee was related to the composer (of the later generation) Eugen, Duke of W├╝rttemberg (Eugen Carl Friedrich) (born 1788, the year CPE died...) The dedicatee was uncle to the composer, I see on Wikipedia (his father, Duke Charles Alexander (1684-1737) was grandfather to the composer.)
