Marking Requirements

Original Music

Licensed Copies

It is recommended that schools purchase a stamp with the above wording for Licensed Copies from your local stationer. Licensed Copies must be stamped, and it is most important that the number of copies made from the original music is marked on or attached to the music, so that schools can keep a record of the number of copies made from each original.

All copies made remain the property of the school for which they were made.
