When Can a Score be Shared?
Copyright is a complicated subject, but here are some simple examples of things that can be shared legally:
When Is It Illegal to Share a Score?
You cannot share any copyrighted work unless you have the songwriter, publisher or other copyright owner's explicit permission to share it. It does not matter if you transcribed the music by yourself, or if your arrangement is original and unique. If the musical work itself is copyrighted and you don't have permission, sharing it is illegal. Properly identifying an arrangement of a copyrighted work and sharing with printing and exporting restrictions is acceptable; however, rights holders may still request removal of any copyrighted work at any time.
