Then your judges are not following instructions. It is absolutely
standard here in Seattle not to allow any use of photocopies at solo &
ensemble contests, period.

As for the ethical obligations, I happen to be both a clarinet player
who has been asked to judge contests from time to time and a working
member of the Washington State Bar Association (who enforces
copyrights--on computer software--for a living). Any other lawyers who
judge S&E contests would have the same dilemma

I have to totally back Dee up here. Being a student who has
participated in S & E contests for many years I think the notion of not
giving a student a grade due to the fact he has copied parts is simply
absurd. I have never experienced a judge who has given a second thought
to the idea.

To turn it into a question of ethical integrity on the part of the judge
is way off base. The judge is there not as an officer of the law but to
evaluate a student and his performance. To suggest he is responsible
for monitoring violations of copyright law is ridiculous!!
