A collection of legally available sheet music. Its FAQ says:
- As the IMSLP servers are physically hosted in Canada, IMSLP has to follow the Canadian Copyright Law. All scores submitted to IMSLP either belong to the public domain, or permission has been granted by the holder of the copyrights so that the files can be submitted to IMSLP (as is the case of contemporary composers who wish to have their works submitted to IMSLP).
- In other words, being legal is the point of IMSLP, and all of its content that is accessible is legally available in the U.S. and Canada. Anything not allowed in the EU is clearly marked as such. See public domain for further details.
They also have a review process for copyright status.
