Misleading copyright information?

Post by Cdalitz »

The copyright information given on he main page that "all scores hosted on CPDL may freely be distributed and performed" seems to be somewaht misleading.

At least I have incidentally come upon some pieces hosted on the CPDL server that bear very different copyright notices. For instance the recently uploaded edition of "Lux fulgebit" by G. Migneni makes it clear that in case of performance royalties are due.

In this case I see no problem therein, because the edition clearly states that it may not be freely used. I wonder however whether this is in compliance with the CPDL policy, which I understand to be such that non free editions must be hosted on external sites.

If this is not the case, I would suggest to correct the copyright information page to reflect this.
