If you have indeed ordered it and it is copyrighted then YOU ARE
BREAKING THE LAW!!!!!!! If you don't want to wait for these deadbeats to
order it, go to the source. Call Shawnee Press. Or call the people we pros
call: Eble Music (in Iowa City) or Frank Music (In New York City). While
it is not nexessarily illegal to xerox a copy of the Clarinet part only
(for study purposes), it IS illegal to xerox the whole piece. And it is
illegal to perform from a xeroxed part if you don't own the original.
We all realize that it is a pain in the butt to wait for stores to
get around to ordering stuff but that inconvenience is simply not a good
enough reason to break copyright laws, which were written to protect
COMPOSERS as well as publishers.
