I love googling my name, cause I come up with the most absurd stuff some times. Like this: http://www.sheetmusicarchive.net/sin...omposer_id=663
Someone (namely John Mamoun, dentist in New Jersey
John Mamoun, DMD, FAGD
100 Craig Road Suite 106
Phone: (732) 431-2888
Took my scores, from IMSLP, or my own website (where they can be found for free), added them to his own website WITHOUT my permission, and then he is charging a (small, I have to admit) subscription fee in order for anyone to download the scores, which are otherwise freely accesible over the net, as you very well know (since whenever I post music, I also post the scores).
I'm a big fan of open source and the free distribution of education and I'm disgust by Johns' attempt. It's well into the night in New Jersey, but I plan on bombing the guy with e-mails, as well as phone him if needed, or send my lawyer to him (which would cost me money, so I reserve as a last effort), until he removes my scores.
PROBLEM: I'm NOT the only one. Someone named Josef, from IMSLP, has the same problem as me, and he's contacted the sheetmusicarchive.net in order to have his scores removed (only they haven't replied in 2 days, even if it was weekend).
So check to see if YOUR name is in the list. Maybe someone is making money, with your scores! ( http://www.sheetmusicarchive.net/ )
And certainly DO NOT subscripe to these people. You can get all those scores from the composers themselves, the composers gain nothing, and the public domain scores ARE PD and can be found in IMSLP.org
