Hi Johngribben! Unfortunately, digitization of public domain works (i.e. scanning) does not constitute copyright in either Canada or the US. Therefore, I am unable to comply with your removal request. More information about scans and copyright can be found here. Sorry! --Feldmahler 19:55, 13 May 2007 (EDT)

Dear Johngribben: Please stop editing the Pines of Rome workpage. Brute force will not result in the removal of the file. If you have concerns the proper place to address them is on the talk page or in the forum. Further attempts will result in blocking. Thank you.--Goldberg988 11:39, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Dear Goldberg988: I beg your pardon. Unfortunately it's hard to know where to address these things sometimes. I hope this is the proper place to address them. Anyway, I will copy and paste my original grievance:

"This page will be deleted, because I still believe this should be removed. The copyright is owned by an American company called EveryNote and the piece can be bought at I believe that, as the person who scanned and submitted this piece to EveryNote, the permission to allow it to be uploaded to IMSLP should be mine, and that allowing others to upload it is against the spirit of IMSLP. I will, of course, be drawing it to the attention of EveryNote."

I understand that I am powerless to force IMSLP to remove this score. However, bearing in mind that someone must have bought it from EveryNote and removed what copyright notices had been placed on it, I still feel that the score should be taken down from IMSLP. I put a lot of hard work into digitising what scores I have on EveryNote, and to have them placed here, for all to download freely, is making a mockery of my efforts. --Johngribben 12:46, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Please notify EveryNote (or whoever you think owns the "copyright" to the scan), and ask them to e-mail the copyright complaint e-mail address on the front page with the proof of a valid copyright, and I will remove the file. Thank you! --Feldmahler 14:08, 20 May 2007 (EDT)
P.S. As clarification, please note that copyright does not protect labour, but creativity. --Feldmahler 14:10, 20 May 2007 (EDT)


Songs and Arias, BWV 439-518 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)

Hi. I don't know if you realized it, but the file you just uploaded to this page is actually the same file as the one that was already there. If you'd like to upload a new version of a file, you can click on the small number underneath the download link (e.g. #63466), go from there to the link 'Upload a new version of this file', and follow further instructions. Thanks! KGill talk email 01:26, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Sonatas for Flute and Clavier, BWV 1030-32 (Bach, Johann Sebastian)

Hi again! Unfortunately, it looks like the file you uploaded was published in 2003 by Carl Fischer; therefore, I had to delete it because there is almost zero chance that it's public domain anywhere. Sorry, KGill talk email 22:11, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

4 letzte Lieder (Strauss, Richard)

Hi John. Unfortunately, the lyrics to Nos.1 through 3 in this set are under copyright worldwide, as their author, Hermann Hesse, died in 1962 (less than 50 years ago). Because of this, your typeset had to be deleted. (However, No.4 is fine to upload, if you'd like to resubmit with only that number included.) Sorry, KGill talk email 22:53, 11 September 2010 (UTC)


I made it policy when I created the page to limit the list to works available on IMSLP only—there would be lots more otherwise! Thanks-- Snailey (_@/) Talk to Me Email me 22:47, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
