This is an urtext/critical/scholarly/scientific edition (or a simple re-engraving). Any commentary or critical apparatus, if protected by copyright, should not be included in the scan(s) available here. This edition was published by Bärenreiter in Germany over 25 years ago and is in the public domain in its country of origin.
In Canada, new editions/re-engravings of public domain works (when not including new original material) should be in the public domain due to failing to meet the threshold of originality. In most European Union countries, these editions (except new original material) are generally protected for no more than 25 years from publication (30 years in Poland). In the United States, copyright can only apply to new creative work, and the re-engraving of a public domain piece (not including new additions of creative material) should not qualify for a new copyright, despite copyright claims (which properly would only apply to new material).
You may need to check the publication date and details of the work's first publication in order to determine the work's copyright status, especially for the United States.

NMA report (German)
NMA report gives the impression that three early printings - one from Franz Hoffmeister (with all 3 Prussian quartets, parts, plate 135), one from Imbault (plate 476 - ca.1797?), one from N. Simrock (plate 16?) - were released close to each other (ca.1797?) (NMA editor doesn't explicitly write, as with some other discussions, Fruhdruck (Erstruck??) or something similar but the question is finessed entirely - then again, since the printings are relevant to the NMA only as sources, not in themselves, if the other sources are useful enough, sometimes first/early published editions are noted at most in passing anyway (there is a recent book (Haberkamp, Tutzing, 1986/91) devoted to the question of "First Publications" of Mozart works much more than the NMA critical reports are, to whom the question is not an end in itself.)
