Arranging someone else's music Legal?
I have written an arrangement of "Round Midnight" (using MuseScore obviously!) and it's first live performance can be found here:
What I'm unclear about is the legality of doing so. I haven't asked permission of the copyright holders. I'm guessing that as long as I don't; 1) sell the arrangement or 2) record it for resale then I will be ok. Am I correct?
And whilst on the subject, how do you get permission to record/arrange others' music Has anyone who uses MuseScore done so?
ps note to MarcS - enjoyed your arrangement of Rhapsody in Blue
