Do you need permission to photocopy music that is of out of print for a contest or festival?
For contests and/or festivals judges require that you present to them original, purchased scores or a letter from the publisher that grants you permission to make photocopies of the out-of-print score you are performing.
Please note that we can only grant permission to photocopy publications that are out of print. You will be required to buy the original copies of publications that are still in print and available for purchase.
The cost for each license is $15 and covers four (4) copies. For example, if you need seven (7) copies you will need permission for two licenses, totaling $30. If your competition or festival is less than two (2) weeks from the date of the request the cost is $25 per license.
Judges’ Score requests will be processed Monday – Friday, 9am – 4pm EST. Requests that are submitted after 4pm EST will be processed the next business day.
