Copying (publication and multiplication) of sheet music and lyrics without the
permission of the copyright holder (the composer, lyricist, editor, arranger and
music publisher) is prohibited. Sheet music is widely copied at the expense of the
income of composers, lyricists and music publishers. If they are not paid for their
work, they can no longer practice their profession. And that means that it is
becoming increasingly difficult to release that beautiful lyric or that innovative
Publication of reproduction therefore requires the permission of the publisher
If music practitioners and other enthusiasts want to make a copy of, for example, a
lyric of a piece of musical notation and place it on the internet of a week's club
magazine, please contact the publisher (firstname.lastname@example.org) of, for example, Musi ©
Making public means: making a piece of sheet music visible, for example, in a
different way than with the original. For example by copying, projecting,
overwriting, burning on a CD, recording in a book or magazine, showing it on a
screen or via the internet, etc.
Reproduction means: Making more copies of the original (or a copy thereof).
