This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. 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’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

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.)
