It is from the general rules of the forum in section III of viewtopic.php?t=1550 .Arrangement of works
To take a specific example: 'Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909)' is in the public domain, but 'Isaac Albeniz arranged by Andres Segovia (1893-1987)' is not, Segovia being dead less than 75 years.
If the composer or arranger is still alive or died less than 75 years ago then the work is still protected by copyright.This applies also to sound reproduction.
However, in the rules elsewhere it says : Works by anonymous composers and those where the composer or arranger has been dead more than 70 years belong to the public domain.Jean-François Delcamp wrote:The rules of exchange of music sheet of this forum
Which items are protected by copyright?
Works whose author or arranger is still alive, or who died less than 75 years ago, are protected.
French law states 75 years... as this site comes out of France then it is covered by French law... so it's 75 yearssxedio wrote:
Is it 70 or 75?
