I guess so.

@dude: he's talking about the translation between the original sound file to the arrangement that I made and the difference in their sound based on what I wrote. Despite its name, "sheet music" isn't music at all.

Actually Olimar is right. "Doesn't translate well" is correct when you're talking about music being edited to play on other instruments, so it stands to reason that certain effects could "translate to piano" in an interesting way. Transcribe has a different meaning than what Sebastian was going for.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

In music copyright law, one can obtain a mechanical compulsory license in order to distribute, in audio format, one's own cover of a copyrighted song. The same does not apply for sheet music, however. There is no such thing as a mechanical compulsory license for sheet music of cover songs. Why?

Because, the sheet music of one's own cover of a song falls under the category of "derivative work", and for that, private negotiation with the right's holder is the only venue to obtain licensing.

But why is it a derivative work? Here's where it gets relevant:

Take this scenario. A vocal piece "covered" in another language would be considered derivative, not transformative, because the words were TRANSLATED. Sheet music is treated similarly, because it's not music -- it's a language.

Conclusion: A piece of fanmade video game sheet music is legally viewed as a TRANSLATION of the source material.

I keep reading your posts but they just don't sound correct.

I mean, I think I get what the difference is. Translation is moving the notes from one medium/instrument to another, transcription is accurately writing all the notes in the first place.

Exactly, you have to transcribe before you translate

I once published my own arrangement of Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson, and that was my first score taken down by a copyright strike. I always believe that I'm treading on hot coals unless I specifically get permission from the original composer(s) (which I've done a grand total of once so far).
