This is a wonderful idea. It is also, unfortunately, illegal. Contrary
to popular belief, there is no "fair use" right to make an extra copy
for performance purposes. Should your orchestra be the one that gets
"checked on" (rare, but you just never know when ASCAP might send over a
couple of investigators in bad suits . . .) you are going to be out some

Subject: Urgent Plea

To all of you who play rental orchestral parts:

This should be obvious, but please don't mark rental parts with anything
the most necessary items. This evening I went to a rehearsal and
someone had previously marked the rental bass clarinet part I was
playing. The
person had written in note names above every bass clef note. This was
by itself, but to make it worse, the note names were all WRONG. The
must have thought it was bass clarinet in C or something. What the last
performance of the piece sounded like, I don't know, but the person
erase the markings in any case. This kind of thing seems to happen at
half the time I get a rental part.

So I plead with you, if you are the type of player who must mark every
every time the conductor changes the pattern, note names in
etc. COPY THE PART AND USE THE COPY. No one else can benefit from your
markings and the parts become impossible to read after a while.

Thank you for your attention.
