International Music Score Library Project shut down

Feldmahler writes: "On Saturday October 13, 2007, I received a second Cease and Desist letter from Universal Edition. At first I thought this letter would be similar in content to the first Cease and Desist letter I received in August.

I cannot apologize enough to all IMSLP contributors, who have done so much for IMSLP in the last two years..."
