No I actually do think it is very good!

Although I'm still sticking by what I said earlier; In my experiences no copyright owner will grant me any licences or permission (in writing) without hearing it or seeing it first. This is definetly Music Sales Ltd policy - I have delt with them about copyright for MacArthur Park, All I have to Do is Dream and Pretty Woman. Was same scenario with The Corries with my arr of Flower of Scotland, Ronnie Browne wanted to see the score first before he granted me permission and signing the contract.


That said, I think that tMP Copyright Guide will inform everyone who needs to know the law of copyright! Good stuff!
