(back) Subject: KINDA OFF-TOPIC: Sibelius' rights to scores created in 2.0 (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 31 Jan 2002 15:19:46 -0800   Herewith my exchange with Sibelius concerning their claiming rights to scores created on Sibelius 2.0:       Dear Friends,   I've ordered Sibelius 2.0 for our church, but in the process of discussing it online, something has surfaced that MAY be one of those Internet legends, or not.   Is there something in/about Sibelius 2.0 where Sibelius claims some sort of rights to scores created in it? If so, it won't be of any use to me, since I distribute my compositions and arrangements for free to any church who wants to use them.   Could you please clarify this?   Sincerely,   Raymond H. Clark Organist/Choirmaster St. Matthew's Church Newport Beach CA USA       Dear Mr. Clark,   It sounds as if you've discovered an Internet Urban Legend! The only rights we claim are to the Sibelius software itself. There is nothing in Sibelius that claims any rights to the scores created with it.   Best regards,   Peter Maund Director, Business Development Sibelius USA, Inc. 1407 Oakland Blvd. Suite 300 Walnut Creek, CA 94596 Tel: 925.280.0600 x106 Fax: 925.280.0008 http://www.sibelius.com/
