The Legalities of Downloading Sheet Music On the Net

There are thousands of websites you could download Lean on Me sheet music from. Some are paid services like MusicNotes, while others allow you to ‘trade’ files, like pianofiles but here the question of legality comes in. Downloading music legally for free is still quite difficult as thousands of sites unfortunately break basic copyright laws. On a site like pianofiles, you’re not really ‘trading’ music as you would in the old days with your neighbor, but in essence you are keeping the old digital file and acquiring a new one. So we don’t recommend this method.

In a way, things used to be so much easier in regards to copyright in the days when you only had books and photocopy technology. Everyone got paid, and stayed happy. However, the benefit of today, is that honest folks can still go to legal music stores and download digitally, enabling them to get their hands on the latest music fast.
