Copyright Issues

As you will be aware, copyright exists on any work written by someone else who died after 1947, regardless of whether this work is published or not. Before publishing an arrangement of such work, copyright clearance must be obtained from the copyright owners.

If you have a piece of music that you have arranged that is still in copyright, please see our 'Copyright Licensing' page for more detailed information.

Pennine Music Publishing do not publish any arrangements for which no copyright clearance exists, however we are able to help gain clearances in some circumstances due to our long relationship with many of the big UK copyright holders.  

Music written by a composer who died before 1946 is usually not subject to copyright, except in special circumstances. Naturally, the copyright to original compositions belongs to the composer.
