Legality of Transcribing a Poor Quality Score
I have been listening to Hubert Parry's 5th Symphony and downloaded the "pocket" score off IMSLP.
As Parry died in 1918, the copyright would have ended in 1988.
The work is available to hire, but would I be allowed to make a new transcript, probably for my own use by a local orchestra?
Having said that, would I be allowed to hire it out anyway?
I don't want to start out on a major task, only for it to be futile and unable to be used.
