"Has any library, or group of libraries, museums, universities worldwide taken Ebay to task over this? All sorts of historic monuments and artifacts are for sale there. Fine for collectors of antiquities but destructive overall."
"The real person behind all this is a young Chinese man, Edward Guo, owner of the company Petrucci LLC.
Besides pirating copies of medieval manuscripts, and also Carl Parrish's Notation of Medieval Music, "Feduol" is a Brazilian…"
Yes, this discussion has generated more heat than light. No point in musicologists discussing the finer points of law. Its all beside the point anyway. Can you please email me direct - firstname.lastname@example.org. I am a senior citizen with…"
"Ah, I was looking for a general link on the homepage. So each work has a separate PDF made, which will be nowhere near as fine as DIAMM, and a cheeky link there to DIAMM. The uploader Feduol I see is "out" on Facebook. However the real…"

"There are clearly issues to be worked out between DIAMM and IMSLP. It is pointless duplication to carry DIAMM images on IMSLP and clearly some form of copyright has been infringed - probably that of the digital image-maker. I hardly think the…"
"I can only assert ther claim of some years back that they were singing St Ephrem as unbroken tradition. Who knows how time may have altered the melodies. My concern at the time (c 2003) was addition of the rock rhythm backing...."
"MMMmmmm...... like Felix I think there is some truth in traditions holding music for millenia. I know the Syriacs in my brief aquaintance sing Aramaic St Ephrem (4th Century) unaltered.... we think. Only now are they attempting to put an…"
