Subj: Re: [kl] Legalities v Illegalities in photocopying, and the like.

You can do whatever and think whatever. I am and will make copies of my sheet
music and will make limited copies (excerpts) of repertoire for my students.
It is not necessary to own two copies. And it is lawful to do so. I would like
to see someone to bother about that or come into my studio with a lawyer
complaining about that. People are so afraid of copyright law and make all kinds
of misconceptions, including that law does not make sense. It is simply not
true. You should just be very careful when it comes to performing. This is where
it can get messy.

##To buy two of everything is laughable. It would even be laughable in
chambers. If a publisher prosecuted for the 'offence?' of necessitating
butchering a poorly produced sheet music copy to facilitate ease of
performance, a judge would throw this out.## Try me - - - -

"Anyone who takes up the clarinet is most definitely NOT a criminal! But Eb

Someone mentioned the tiny Sopranino clarinet. I think this is pitched in
Ab? I`ve seen a Leblanc on display in Bill Lewington`s many years ago, but I
have only just realised that I`ve never heard one played. Is there any
repertoire - has anyone ever written for it?
