Information Wants to Be Free, Composers Want to Get Paid

A fascinating article in this morning's New York Times about the International Music Score Library Project - an open source repository of musical scores that are available free to the public.

This has struck a sour note with music publishers and composers who believe that free scores on the internet erodes their livelihood. Not to mention, they add, it violates copyright laws.

You can read the full article here.

We then suggest heading over to San Diego Opera's Facebook page where we have some interesting comments from musicians, composers and administrators. Why not join in?
