Ownership and Byline


The notes I write as part of our agreement are not works made for hire.  I maintain copyright ownership in them.  Once you have the notes, you have the right to print them in your program books (as well as online, if this is part of your usual method).   You have the right also to use the notes again for your orchestra or ensemble in future concerts, but you may not allow other ensembles to use them.  Your right to use the notes in this fashion is a non-exclusive right, which means that I may allow other groups to use them as well, at my discretion.


            Please give the following byline in your program books (as well as online):
