LMS sheet music and licences

News 29.09.2018 12:46

Hi All.

I've never been happy with the way MusicaNeo makes sales have limited licences. As far as I'm concerned, whenever I buy sheet music, whether it be for band or for myself, I automatically believe that I now own that copy of the music and I can play it for as many times as I like in perpetuity. My band has sheet music that is even older than I am and we keep bringing some of it out to go on the concert programmes on a fairly regular basis.

I mistakenly set all my music to have a licence, because the option to sell without a licence seems to imply that you aren't allowed to perform the  music - which is absurd, to say the least.

So, here's an announcement. Sales of LMS music are unlimited. You are allowed to play them out for as long as you like, as long as you agree to replace lost or damaged sheets by buying them afresh. Except where your ensemble (a band, for example) has multiple players on a part, you are not allowed to photocopy extra parts. If you lose a part, you can apply to me for a replacement and I'm happy to do that for you. In return for your honesty, there are no restrictions on how many times or for how long you can play my stuff. If you want to make a recording, please just drop me a line to let me know.

If you are performing my stuff anywhere in the world, I'm always delighted to hear about it. I lay no claim to any money you may make from selling your recording(s) and please, feel free to send me an mp3 if you have the time on your busy schedules.
