Talk:Harmonielehre (Schoenberg, Arnold)

I wonder if the english translation of this book is in public domain. Here is what i found on the A.Schoenberg wikipedia page :

"Translation by Roy E. Carter, based on the third edition, as Theory of Harmony. Berkeley, Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1978."

My question is quite simple: can i upload it or not ?

Not the 1978 translation. It is under copyright worldwide. Schoenberg's original text is free in both Canada and the USA. I don't think there was an English version issued before 1923. If there was, it is free in the USA, but its status elsewhere would depend upon the death date of the translator. Carolus 05:51, 2 January 2012 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)
