And to make the intellectual property mix even more fascinating, "Xerox" is
not a verb, but a trademark. If you use it as a verb in an advertisement,
you'll get a nastygram from Rochester. If you sell "Xeroxing" services,
you'll get sued.

A misconception. It is illegal to copy the entire clarinet part for study.
Excerpts would fit the "fair use" clause, not the entire work. It is alos
illegal to perform from a copy even if you own the piece.

It's not "technically illegal" as some people seem to think - there's no
such
thing as "technically illegal", which would imply that it's legal in some
other context. Going 5 mph (or kph) over a speed limit is illegal; it's
a value judgement you make on whether or not you choose to break the law.

It _is_ common practice to break some of these laws, but laws they are
nonetheless.
