I've been giving my scores away - for a long time. I'm probably the first composer online to do so. At least, I don't know of anybody who was doing it before the late '80's as an intentional means of publishing. http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Harringt ... ey_Michael
Needless to say, there are a lot of different versions of my scores out there, from things I've given people to things that I'd put up at the Icking Archive. Another IMSLP user has been uploading scores to my page that I had been planning on revising - or that I'm actively revising now.
What right do I have to ask that they be removed? My 1st String Quartet is under revision and the movement the user has uploaded is available under a different name right now (Adagio Tenebroso for String Quartet). It's the slow movement; I'm still revising the other movements.
My songs for Soprano and Marimba, Baudelaire Macabre were uploaded last month, too. I have been intending to revise them. Can I put a note saying that they're under revision? I don't see how to do that.
So, some advice, please - as a living composer, I'm flattered folks want to add scores to my IMSLP page. However, if I revise them, are they going to be different editions? All the editions are mine - they're just either out of date or kind of retracted. What rights do I have here? And more importantly, what do you guys think I should do?
