Case of the Canadian Online Repositories of Public Domain
The International Music Score Library Project
The International Music Score Library Project (MSLP) is a Canadian project aimed at the creation of a virtual library of public domain musical scores. The Library Project had to be shut down on October 19, 2007 because some works that had fallen into the public domain in Canada were still protected elsewhere -- and could be reached online from those countries. The project ultimately went back online after clearing up these copyright issues.
