Editor about song of public domain

Hello why I should insert the author if i done cover of songs of public domain?

Hi @marcovitali

Thank you for your message. Someone from the iMusician Team will get back to you shortly, and take care of your request. Please be patient.

There is no work on weekends and tomorrow is a public holiday in Germany. That’s why you can’t expect a response until Tuesday.

@Carlos can you help here? Thanks!

If the song you’re covering is in the public domain but the author’s name is known, please write the name of the author to credit their work correctly. If the author’s name is unknown, you can tick the “Traditional” toggle.

In any case our Quality Assurance team will notify you if corrections need to be brought to your metadata.

Imusician ask me also the editors. Where and how i can find them?


You can find this info in a collecting societie’s databse, such as SACEM : Repertoire of works - SACEM

If I search bourree of bach for example there are a lot of results. Which i should choose?
