Know the Score


The International Music Score Library Project, an online storehouse of scores in the public domain, has shut down after it received a cease-and-desist letter from Universal Edition, a European music publisher. According to a post on Slashdot, most of the scores on the site were in the public domain worldwide. Some were still under copyright in the United States or Europe, but were in the public domain in Canada, where the site was hosted. The site warned users to follow their home country's laws.
