URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. 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'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Reprinted:

Kassel: Bärenreiter, 2001.

In the USA this work is most likely in the public domain because no renewal was found after a thorough search of the Catalog of Copyright Entries, it was either ineligible for "restoration" under GATT/TRIPs and/or no record of an NIE filing was found in the online records of the US Copyright Office.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP assumes no legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Comments

Baroque violinist Jaap Schröder writing on the famous Chaconne in Bach's Solo Violin Works (Yale U.P. 2007): "It is essential to use the readily available facsimile of the Chaconnne [e.g. this particular IMSLP file]. . . . In most other editions Bach's arm has been twisted to make him write things he did not write."
