User talk:Ehsan Saboohi

Dear Ehsan, Welcome to IMSLP! Thanks for uploading you work here. As a composer posting his own work here, there are a few things you should be aware of:

1. Your work is not public domain. In fact, it is literally impossible for you to place your work in the public domain under the laws of several countries. Therefore, we require that composers use one of the Creative Commons licenses for their own pieces.

2. The act of posting your work on IMSLP meets the legal definition of "publication" under most copyright laws. We ask that you list yourself as "publisher" since we do not wish to take inquiries from people wishing to perform your work, record it, etc. If you have a website, please feel free to include a link.

3. Insert the tag at the very top of the page for each work using the "edit" mode. I've already done this for the pieces you've uploaded so far, long with correcting the copyright field, the publisher field, and cleaning up bad spelling and capitalization.

Dear Ehsan, The Lennon and McCartney original is under copyright worldwide. In some countries, it would be illegal for you to even create the arrangement without obtaining written permission first from the copyright owners. Unfortunately, we can't allow you to post this here unless you obtain permission in writing from whatever music conglomerate presently controls the Lennon/McCartney copyrights. If you cannot produce permission in the next few hours, this will be deleted. Carolus 17:04, 10 June 2009 (EDT) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

Copyright Violation: Lennon-McCartney

Creative Commons Licenses

Dear Ehsan,

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,

I am tagging this piece, and I'm not sure about the comment about Ali-Naqi Vaziri. Is he an editor or librettist? I don't see his name anywhere else on the page. If it is in the wrong place, I'd like to move it to the correct place. If there is something else missing, I would like to add it. Steltz 18:00, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
