Online Distribution of Music
ScottMusic.com has developed a state-of-the-art proprietary method to publish music over the Internet. Instead of selling ink on paper, we are granting permission (through a License Agreement) to you and/or your institution to photocopy as many copies as you need for an unlimited period of time.
This licensing method of distribution allows you the flexibility to produce as many copies of the PDF format music as you need for your own noncommercial use, pursuant to the License Agreement. It also results in a cost effective alternative to the purchasing, shipping, handling, and storage of traditional forms of music. Music can now be stored on a CD or in a computer.
Each high quality 300 dpi PDF format piece of music is set up to be printed on a computer laser printer and then on a duplexing photocopier. The pages are offset for three-ring punching for a binder.
The business models in the music industry have changed over the years. As you have seen with the record industry, more people are purchasing music over the Internet and receiving it via a download into their computer then ever before. Instead of selling pieces of plastic on which the music is embedded, the record companies are licensing the music to you for your personal use.
With the advent of broadband Internet service, the purchasing and downloading of music and audio files represents a major shift in the distribution of music.
We hope you appreciate the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of this new distribution method. We would appreciate your feedback.
