Regardless of yours, or anyone else's personal feelings, I feel I'm well within my rights here. I have had people use my music before without my knowledge, and I have no problems with people doing what they will usually, as long as I know about it--I just wanted to make sure nothing unfortionate happened to me or my art, and I think, as we do all deal with artistic content here, that we should all be able to appreciate that.
This is going in circles. I've already addressed the entirety of the above.
This is a public forum. Anyone can see what I'm writing here, and what I post. ANYONE. Say I post this package with the score and mp3 on a website, and supply the url here. Some jerk comes along not even related to the WC community, takes my score,
But you haven't posted your music. And no silly little disclaimer will protect it from unscrupulous people if you do.
It is a real fear today, especially in a public forum such as this, and something that does worry me, as people have disrespected my work before.
Everybody is well aware of what happens. That's exactly why we all know it doesn't do any good to post warnings to people who'd do that sort of thing. If it were actually any sort of worry of yours, you just wouldn't post the music. The one and only purpose and result of posting such a warning is to inflate the importance of your work and make yourself sound fancy.
