Hi every body out there and dear group members..today I'd like to post some interesting links about scores..

I think there a two different things: to buy or rent a score or material to make a concert or a recording or to buy or to borrow sheet music in a library to read them to play the music to learn about effects, instrumentation and so on. I think for us all are copyrights important and so I´m member of GEMA in Germany. Composers earn money not at first about sheet music but about performances of their works. I sell my sheet music mostly only for the costs of printing, or I give only one copy for a high price with a copyright (e.g. for a little choir piece). What do you think?
Hi, reading your comments I'm wondering about who wins when a music score is used. Publishers own their own copyright. Music Societies, groups and musicians pay for each concert, cd or performance. People pay a canon of copyright for hearing a cd, go to a concert or see a play. But, what about composers?
I am a member of the Society of Authors of Spain (SGAE) and -considering that I have very few registered works-, I have not received any percentage of my work since 2008.
So, when people talks about share or trade scores, I prefer to offer my scores to the bands that ask for them before someone wants to publish them. First, because when I'm asked for they will play them, better, and secondly, to avoid an intermediary (publishers).
For others scores, the possibility of being accessible to everyone is a little rough, but if this trading or sharing of scores is between professionals or orchestras, I think it could be more interesting because we would be ensuring that works are disseminated more easily, keeping safe the composers copyrights.
Anyway, I've got lot of complete orchestra, big band, small ensembles, brass ensembles scores . If anyone is looking for one, please don't hesitate to contact me.
