Public Domain Song (Finlandia op. 26) Forced to Private Upon Upload
I am arranging Jean Sibelius' song "Finlandia, op. 26" for concert band setting (just for fun), and when it was uploaded to MuseScore, it was forced to private setting. I understand this is for copyright reasons, however, in the United States, any song composed before 1925 is public domain (meaning any classical songs before 1923), or songs can enter the public domain 50-75 years after the composer's death. As "Finlandia" was written in 1899-1900, it is public domain in the US, where I am located.
I went to my score earlier, and saw a paragraph stating that it is "temporarily hidden"
Under copyright details, it says: Publisher Banreah
Please look at these passages I found on public domain:
Here is the link to the score:
Please review this, and understand that this song is public domain, and that this is my own arrangement. I am not copying this off of any arrangement, only arranging the original orchestral version for a concert band, which is legal as this song is public domain.
Thank you for your time.
