Re: Deleting old works

Many users may have downloaded your editions over the years, and we have to ensure that they can continue using them according to the copyright terms that were applicable at that time. As a consequence, editions are never actually deleted: they are archived, and we have to document the fact that suc...

Re: Old Public Doman Melodies & Settings (carols) - Completely New Songs

3. According to CPDL, is a "song" by the lyricist, or is it by the "composer", however unwitting that composer may be of the song? We seldom use the term "song" here on CPDL. We generally use the term "work". According to the intellectual property laws of mos...

Re: Multi-Category Search "composer name" broken?

Thank you for notifying us about this problem. This function makes use of the DynamicPageList3 extension of the MediaWiki software, and apparently there is a bug with the ignorecase option, i.e., an option that one has to select in order to perform case-insensitive searches on titles or other attrib...

Re: Request pages

Honestly speaking, I'm not sure that this "score request" feature should be maintained, or, at least, that it should be maintained as it is now. The introduction of these forums, as well as the availability of alternatives (e.g., IMSLP), may suggest to adopt a different approach. I would p...

Re: Holst Bring us in Good Ale - copyright...????

So this basicaly means that we can distribute verbatim copies as long as we do not sell them? You can even sell copies: 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Edition as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropria...

Re: Holst Bring us in Good Ale - copyright...????

Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer, however I can provide some basic explanation. Copyright applies to works and to editions . Most works on CPDL are public domain (i.e., the copyright originally held by the composer, by the lyricst, by the the arranger, etc., has expired already) while editions are relat...

Re: Multi-column page layout

This problem seems related to mobile browsers based on Chromium, like Chrome. Mobile browsers based on Gecko, like Mozilla Firefox, display the same page fine. Sooner or later we should adopt a MediaWiki skin specifically designed for mobile browsers, however this will likely require to change the s...

Re: copyright question Salve Regina

Unfortunately this file is an "orphan", i.e., a file that the editor uploaded without creating an edition page for it, where the relevant copyright information would have been specified. So, its copyright status is unknown. You may try to contact the editor through her discussion page: htt...

Re: Collapsible/expandable Edition notes?

Collapsing/expanding any element is a standard feature of the MediaWiki software. See details here. I've done a simple implementation on that page. Please feel free to improve it.

Re: error message with addworks

I have created a draft page that, once finalized, may replace the existing score submission guide. As a consequence, some adjustments may be required to the [[Help:Automated add score process]] page then.
