A Simple Explanation of What You Can and Cannot Do

When you purchase music from Custom Chamber Music for your ensemble, you can print hardcopies or share PDF files of any parts that are included in the purchase with anyone in your ensemble. For example, if you purchase an arrangement for bassoon trio and you want to play it with your 21-piece bassoon ensemble, you can print out all 21 parts and copies of the score (or share the PDF files for tablet display) with no additional cost. But you can't give the music to anyone else, you can't post it online, and you can't sell it.

You can play the music in any setting as often as you want. This includes public performances.

You can't change the arrangement (create any "derivative works"), other than small adjustments for your own ensemble like adjusting dynamics.
