Submission + - Taken Down Thanks to MPA (

dsavi writes: The International Music Score Library Project's website (A library of public domain scores and recordings of classical music) has been taken down by GoDaddy per a DMCA takedown request from the Music Publisher's Association. According to the MPA, a score of Rachmanioff's Bells is under copyright in the US, while according to IMSLP it is most definitely not. A DMCA counter-notice has been issued to GoDaddy by IMSLP, unfortunately there is a ten-day waiting period before the domain can be restored. While the domain is down, the music library can still be accessed at Anyone who is interested in helping with counter-suing the MPA can email imslproject at yahoo dot ca.
