I'm currently working on a collection of fiddle tunes transcribed/transposed for viola. It includes copyrighted music, but I have explicit permission from the copyright holders to post the collection publicly on the internet. The collection is produced using LilyPond and Frescobaldi, although I was planning to do the introductory materials in another program and post the whole production as PDF. Would my collection be acceptable with copyrighted (copywritten?) materials? I could remove the copyrighted materials, but that would certainly make the collection less useful to other violists.



I would prefer that we not limit the productions to public domain and open content licensed material.  In my opinion, as long as the music is available to see on the web (preferably in pdf form), we should let it be listed on our productions page.


I'm afraid this isn't a matter of personal opinion, because "we're a GNU project" etc. etc.

I haven’t seen anything about GNU software that tries to restrict freedom of use.  In fact, one of the key issues of GNU software is exactly freedom of use.  The GNU licenses don’t say that any code compiled with gcc must have a GPL license.  They only say that any modifications to *the GPL software* must have a GPL license.

As far as I can see, as long as the copyright holder for the music has given the permission for the music to be published on the internet, it’s perfectly fine for LilyPond, as a GNU project, to link to the location where the music is published.
