Selling Arrangements of Public Domain Works
You will earn a 50% sales commission for your arrangement of a public domain work.
Arrangeable Song Catalog
You can search for a known public domain work in our catalog to identify the original composition. If it is not listed in the catalog, simply provide the details of the original public domain work. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information you provide on public domain works.
Original Arrangements Only
Arrangements must be created from the original public domain work and cannot be based on an existing arrangement. Selling an arrangement of an existing arrangement is not permitted in Noteflight Marketplace.
When placing your arrangement of a public domain work for sale, you will have the choice of offering either a full-length, watermarked preview or the up to 32-measure, non-watermarked preview of your score. Selecting up to 32 measures will display half of your score or the first 32 measures, whichever is less. The score audio will also playback for the same length as your selected preview.
Title, Credits, and Copyright
When selling an arrangement of a public domain work, the “Lyricist” field in the upper left and the “Composer” field in the upper right of the score should be blank. Noteflight will place the original composer name for identified public domain works in the composer field for you, or give you the option to provide the name if the work is not in the catalog. You will provide your arranger name during the selling process and Noteflight will add this to your score in the upper left.
Ownership of Arrangements of Public Domain Works
You retain ownership of your arrangement of a public domain work and selling on Noteflight Marketplace is non-exclusive.
