Statement on Copyright

When you purchase any item, you agree to the following terms:

Copying is illegal, and its practice negatively impacts the livelihood of the composers, arrangers and publishers who have worked so hard to create and prepare their works for performance and publication. Be honest and don't make unauthorized copies or otherwise share/distribute music without permission.

When you purchase a digital sheet music title (PDF), you are authorized to make one printed copy for your own personal use. Any additional printing, copying or sharing/distributing is illegal. This applies equally to any promotional copy received.

There can be confusion over copyright laws for music in the public domain. Here in Canada, music enters the public domain 50 years after the death of the composer; however, the arranger (or editor/transcriber) of any such work owns the copyright for their published arrangement (or edition/transcription). It is therefore illegal to copy these publications.

Exclusions: Permission is hereby granted to the authorized owner of a Pine Grove Music publication to make copies in the following circumstances:

  • copies of single pages to faciltate page turns.
  • copies of the complete work for a university performance jury/exam when copies are requested by the jurors/examiners. Condition: these copies must be destroyed immediately after the jury/exam.

Please note that most music festivals (e.g., Kiwanis) and other competitions require originals of both the performer's and adjudicator's copies of a musical score/part. Additional copies (including digital PDFs) must be purchased for such purpose.

Please contact us to request permission to copy music for any other purpose.
