Re: What has happened to my submission?

The ultimate objective is to have a page for every single work. Collection pages are simply pages for scans of printed volumes that contain more than one work. When there are arrangements and new editions of individual works found on a collection page they should be offloaded onto newly-created page...

Re: Name change

This cannot be done. Usernames are always capitalized. They also cannot be changed. Moreover, setting up multiple usernames is grounds for banning as it's a common tactic of spammers. For those with subscriptions, having more than one username is a near-guarantee of login problems.

Re: "I-Catalogue Numbers"

It does not replace opus numbers or any extant cataloging system. It's purpose is strictly to handle cases where a composer has more than one work with an identical title - Vivaldi and composers of his era were especially prone to simply title everything with a generic "concerto" and the l...

Re: Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #2

By Rachmaninoff's day, Jossuk's point is quite correct. Solo piano parts with cues were pretty much a thing of the past by 1910. Go back a century and it's a different story.

Re: Miraculous Mandarin copyright

They're grasping at straws. The only possible case in which the copyright of the story might apply would be an actual ballet performance in which the basic outlines of Lengyel's story was followed. Even then the connection is very tenuous as Lengyel was not the choreographer, and the outline of the ...

Re: is removal of certain editing features enough?

The manuscript added is the composer's actual holograph looking at the corresponding RISM record for it. So you now have all you need to determine what to remove.

Re: The Trans-Pacific Partnership New Update

Unless yet another extension is passed, the 1923 items enter US public domain January 1, 2019 (publication + 95 years) and so on for each year thereafter.

Re: This is a little weird

As long as you can document a performance/broadcast, recording or "delivery" (likely meaning a contract for publication) more than 50 years ago, the work is eligible. Since he died after 1948, the rule in Canada gets stricter and items not meeting the above criteriae are eligible for Canad...

Re: Help to identify a (copyrighted) edition of Scarborough Fair

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that it appears to have been done in Sibelius. Might narrow down the possible list a bit.

Re: Neuen Berlioz-Ausgabe

With critical editions it does not matter if the editor is alive or dead less than 50 years. Our voluntary rule is closely patterned on Germany's Section 70, which sets a term of 25 years from date of publication for such editions (literally "scientific editions" in their law). They are no...

Re: is removal of certain editing features enough?

Looking at the ca.1792 mss, it appears that Rust may well have included slurs, articulations and even fingerings (a little unusual). There is a good chance that a fair number of those in the score you're working on originate from the composer. Did you try looking to see if the sonata you're interest...

Re: Are fantasias really arrangements?

Like so many things, it depends on the nature of the item. There plenty of operatic derivatives which are little more than medleys or mere highlights of the more popular tunes. These certainly qualify as arrangements - there's no originality involved apart from abridgement, simplification and maybe ...

Re: Copyright Protected vs. Public Domain Material

This is actually something of a misunderstanding on your part. While it is true that a majority of the 122,000 works are out of copyright at least in Canada, there are quite a few items that are under a type of copyright here (more than half the files, actually). These files are all available here u...

Re: is removal of certain editing features enough?

You would need to be able to compare the original with the newer edition. Generally, things from ca.1800 don't include a lot of articulations, etc. as you probably know. However, there are exceptions, especially if the composer was a well-known teacher.
