We are happy to allow you to link to us and in suitable cases will reciprocate. Details of how to link
are available from the Links page. However,
direct links to the music score, pdf file and midi files are strictly prohibited. We regularly
change the address of our files so any such links will not work for long. Linking to these files
adds to our bandwidth without bringing visitors to the site - as such it is a form of stealing.
We often get questions from schools or competitions asking if using sheet music from 8notes.com is valid in terms of copyright. The answer is yes, we are the copyright holders of all material
on 8notes.com and we respect copyright law, so you can confirm to whoever wishes to know, that your music was obtained legitimately.
