Dear Powell7300, welcome to IMSLP and thanks for your contributions. Just a hint: if you upload your own typesets of works please choose one of the CC licenses, see also IMSLP:Permissible licenses#(Re)Typesets. Thanks and Regards, Hobbypianist 05:47, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Updated information regarding Creative Commons, etc.

Dear Hideo,

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,

Carolus (copyright admin)

Bachianas 9

Hi Powell7300. Unfortunately, the arrangement you uploaded had to be deleted, as this work was first published in 1969 and is therefore still under copyright in virtually the entire world. Sorry, KGill talk email 15:01, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Work Pages

Dear Powell7300,

Kindly quit attempting to create work pages with two composers. Arrangements always go to the page for the original work. Carolus 01:52, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Dear Carolus,

I thank you for your comment and I understand. But wonder how I add my arrangements to my contributors page.

They are automatically added by the template LinkArr that is generally put in the 'Arranger=' field of the file entry on the page for the original work - in your case, it would be {{LinkArr|Hideo|Kamioka}}. This creates a link to your page and also puts it in the subcategory for your arrangements so that it appears under your category. (You can also look at the pages already listed there to see how it's done.) Cheers, KGill talk email 02:44, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Dear KGill,

Thank you for your useful comment. I would try.

New versions of files

Hi, there is a rather easier way to upload new versions of your files than actually going through the normal upload process for new files. If you click on the 5- or 6-digit number underneath a file's download link (for instance, #105876), you will be taken to another page which has a link entitled 'Upload a new version of this file'. This allows you to select another file from your computer and update the original here without having to take the trouble of inputting information for new files. (You will have to do this here, by the way - for some reason, the upload of the new files did not go through, and the old files were not replaced.) Cheers, KGill talk email 01:56, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Dear KGill,

Thank you again. I have been able to upload a new version.

Computer-generated recordings

Hi Powell7300. I just noticed that a couple months ago, you submitted a virtual recording to Die Kunst der Fugue, BWV 1080 (Bach, Johann Sebastian). Unfortunately, most computer-generated recordings are a violation of IMSLP's recording policy, and therefore I had to remove it. Sorry, KGill talk email 15:41, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
