“Open Goldberg Variations – BWV 988 – 15 – Variatio 14 a 2″ Youtube Upload: False Claims and Disputes Report

October 10, 2013

Source Type: Sound Recording
Source: “Goldberg Variations – BWV 988 – 15 – Variatio 14 a 2”
Music by J.S. Bach, 1741
Recording/Performance on Piano by Kimiko Ishizaka
Released as part of the Open Goldberg Variations Project and funded on Kickstarter

Notes on Copyright Status:

Bach’s music, the Open Goldberg Variations, are in the public domain due to having been written in 1741, making them too old to be copyrighted in the U.S.

Kimiko Ishizaka’s recording of her performance of the Goldberg Variations is in the public domain because she released it into the public domain using the Creative Commons Zero Waiver on May 28th, 2012.

False Copyright Claims on This Recording:

One claim was registered to “one or more music publishing rights collecting societies.”

Resolution:

I disputed the claim on the grounds that it is public domain (and not a track owned by any publishing rights collection agency) and the claim was released within seconds.
