Secondly, I have a score of Rachmaninoff's Preludes which says:
"Copyright by Edition A. Gutheil
Copyright assigned 1947 to Boosey & Hawkes Inc., New York, U.S.A"
a) The score is unedited and as Rachmaninoff died in 1943 this places the score in Public Domain in US & Canada - does this mean that the 1947 is insignificant with regards to uploading rules here? and
b) Would one upload this file listing Gutheil as the publisher and Boosey as the reprint?
Lastly, if the dates death of involved persons and the date of the original publication are the only dates to be taken into account, does this mean notices such as copyright dates added by the publisher can be ignored as such?

Also when I said "does this mean notices such as copyright dates added by the publisher can be ignored as such?" I meant (for example) I have an edited version of Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1, which says "Copyright 1949", which presumably is when this version (with editions) was first published. But this doesn't have any bearing on uploading does it? It's just the date of the first publication of the work?
