Re: PDF from BNF

What you're doing is exactly right, actually. There's no violation of any regulation, and we prefer at IMSLP to avoid inclusion of these added pages because they often imply, at least for the casual reader, some sort of copyright claim by the library on their scan.

Re: About copyright

A little more information is needed in order to determine with confidence whether they are OK to post on IMSLP. All three are probably under copyright in the US, I can tell you. 1. Who arranged the Bach for flute and piano? 2. Is there an editor listed for the Jeanjean? The possibility is suggested ...

Re: Scans must be Public Domain

That's pretty much what it means for our purposes, even if MDZ might disagree. The usual practice on IMSLP for this kind of thing is to upload simply as public domain while always making sure to credit the scanner; see http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Scores_from_Bayerische_Staatsbibliothek for instan...

Re: Scans must be Public Domain

If this scan is simply a photographic reproduction of the source, it is not copyrightable under a CC or any other license in most places---look up "sweat of the brow". (I'm assuming the piece itself is in the public domain.)

You can still do that. Nothing has changed.

Re: Berg 4 Pieces for Clarinet and Piano op.5

John, have you tried downloading it and opening outside of your browser? For example, on my machine PDF.js displays every page as a huge black box, but MuPDF shows it perfectly fine.

Re: Upcoming changes

IMSLP is purely a technical platform. It does not need a single person to be paid to do anything, unless, or until, the copyright issues become a central tenet of its operation. Even so, that has already been dealt with, and volunteer members have picked up that slack, calling themselves "Copy...

Re: What are these accesses to other sites for?

Assuming this works on Windows the same way as on Linux, you can block attempted connections to (or from) other servers by redirecting them to 0.0.0.0 (kind of a "null" IP address). E.g., in my /etc/hosts I have 127.0.0.1 localhost (...) 0.0.0.0 www.facebook.com 0.0.0.0 m.facebook.com 0.0....

Re: What are these accesses to other sites for?

I think the site has some embedded javascript from several sites because of heavy linking to them as an affiliated resource (Peachnote, ?Olympiana.fm, ?Joytunes) or because of donations (Paypal). A while back I actually blocked the Peachnote website in /etc/hosts because it was holding things up--it...

Re: Upcoming changes

For the record, Feldmahler announced this in the Moderation Forum on December the 13th. It was presented as a done deal at that time, essentially. ... I understand that, without more information, it's hard to know what to think of him ... The lack of information is precisely one of the most damning ...

You should be able to easily change these things yourself, through use of the 'edit' tab appearing at the top of the page when you're logged in.

Re: Victor Herbert. Orange Blossom. Pages blank.

Have you tried saving the file to your computer rather than simply opening it in your browser? For me it displays perfectly fine--don't see any issues with it whatsoever. On your machine, is the archive.org viewer also not displaying anything?
