Dear biyectivo thank you for your post and welcome on the Virtual Sheet Music forums.

Yes, that's an important matter unfortunately we are not yet able to solve. Some composition is in the public domain in the US but not in the rest of the world, so we can make it available for US users only. No matter the use you will do of it, we cannot distribute a copyrighted composition where it is so considered.

We are aware of this limitation, but at the moment we cannot solve it in a different way. We are doing our best to implement a policy that allows us to pay royalties on those copyrighted pieces allowing both Members and normal users to pay for those copyrighted pieces only. We hope to be able to do it within the next 2 years.

For more information on copyrights, please read our copyrights policy.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Fabrizio Ferrari, CEO
