User talk:Symphonynumberone

i Hi Quinn,

I think we have the same musical interest, I like most of all classical Composers. Above all Moart... :) I compose, too. If you like, we can swap our Music.

Greetings, Christian Junck

PS: My English is not very well... *g*

Hello Christian,

I Love most of the classical composers too. i even compose in their style, so i would classify most of my music as late classical/early romantic(Symphony No. 2). And i would love to see your music!

Thank You, Quinn Mason

Concerto for Chris

Dear Quinn: is this a solo percussion concerto? It got tagged just as an orchestra piece because the instrumentation didn't mention a soloist. I would like to add it if the current tag is not correct. Thanks, Steltz 06:57, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

It's actually a concerto for percussion section... by the way, could you also tag my 7th symphony? Thanks.

Replacing files (for updated versions)

Dear Quinn,

You have to click on the file number to replace a file with a new version. When you click on the number, just follow the link to "upload a new version of this file". If your upload is successful, the copyright tags will revert to untagged. It sometimes takes a couple of days for your browser's cache to actually display the revised file, but it is actually replaced as long as you see the copyright tags go to U/U/U. For the "scanner (typesetter)" field - just put in "composer" or your name as this is supposed to refer to a person instead of software. Because our re-design creates line breaks for long user names like "Symphonynumberone", we really recommend putting in "composer" in the uploader field also when you're adding things. Also, please see the note below about Creative Commons licenses. Thanks, Carolus 03:35, 28 December 2011 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

Creative Commons Licenses, etc.

Dear Quinn,

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 03:36, 28 December 2011 (UTC) (IMSLP Copyright Admin)

PS: For additional and more detailed explanation, please visit our Composer Portal page.

Smart move to use the non-commercial license. This way you can complain to Ebay if you notice the sellers of CDs and DVDs with thousands of scores are selling your works. Trust me, they do this all the time. Carolus 02:59, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, Carolus.
