Beethoven sonata edition

Postby worov » Wed Jan 27, 2016 4:32 pm

Hi, everyone!

I have a PDF scan of Beethoven's opus 27 no 1 in a ABRSM edition. The edition is by Donald Francis Tovey. Fingering is by Harold Craxton. I know Tovey is PD (there are scores of him on IMSLP). However, I have my doubts on Craxton. Publication date isn't mentionned in the PDF file. If I'm not mistaken, it should be 1931.

Can this be uploaded ?

Thanks in advance.

I suppose that means no.

Thank you for your answer.

At best the publications might be in the public domain in the United States due to a faulty copyright notice or a failure to register (and renew after 28 years) the publication with the U.S. Copyright Office but that would have to be researched through the volumes of the Catalog of Copyright Entries. Any work edited by Craxton will not be in the public domain in Canada until Jan. 1, 2021 and not in the EU until Jan. 1, 2041.
