Pianoman, just out of curiosity, are you setting a huge musical library ? Are you going to resell these scores ? I don't think we have ever seen so many requests in such a short time !

No selling whatsoever! That goes completely against my principles!

By the way, who's the "owner" of a site named "Piano Rare Scores" that is SELLING all of the scores of this forum?

I'm only trying to collect and organize all the pieces mentioned in the piano syllabus of my music school.
I'm even trying to create a index file in Microsoft Word where you click on the name of a piece and the PDF appears on screen.

So, that's why I have so many requests (and I'm not asking for everything I need...). Please don't be upset with me! this is kind of a "live project" for me.

This is precisely a big problem which makes people more reluctant to share their rare scores here to find them later sold by "Piano rare scores", although of course it is nice in a way to see unknown music beeing disseminated and more broadly offered to the public.

The site is well organized and easy to navigate and, as you say, it's nice to have another resource to get rare music, although it's categories and thematic organization are the EXACT copy of Pianophilia! it could be almost an official site for Pianophilia!
The main problem is how he gets the scores in the first place. He takes advantage of the good-will of many users of this forum and tries to "make a buck" with it (I'm pretty sure he doesn't earn much money with that).

One question: Some of the scores I scanned years ago are signed by me. Legally, do I (or any other user that scans scores and signs them) have any chance to do a thing?

This is a really big, big problem and the Forum will die soon because of that if we don't take any action...

I don't know if this subject was debated here before but I think we should talk about it and try to find solutions.

One of them (a little stupid, I guess) is to use the forum only for information and requests, and the score is given to the user who requested it by Private Message (I told you it was stupid...).

Well...thanks anyway.

The good old piano rare scores debate... I really hate the person who is running this site since they had stolen some of my self-made Niemann editions. I think everyone on this forum struggles with prs.
Best regards

I can understand why...your WORK gives revenue to ANOTHER guy! That's pure opportunism.
But does anyone knows who that guy (who is probably laughing reading this...) is?
