Graphic recording of music (sheet music)

To consider

Graphic recordings of sheet music do not fall under Art. 2 para. 2 (b) CopA. Apart from exceptions, they do not have any copyright protection themselves; they are only the communication form of the – potentially protected – music. However, when reproducing sheet music, it must be noted that if the music itself is protected by copyright, the corresponding sheet music may not be reproduced or only reproduced under certain conditions.
