Everyone is right to some extent! Some of the permissions we have received have come from publishers, and some from composers. Some composers when approached for permission will advise that we need to go to their publisher. Others are able to give permission themselves. In this case, M. D. Pujol provided explicit permission himself for recordings of any of his works to be posted here.
It is true that the permissions we hold do not generally permit pdfs of the printed score to be posted, as that is covered by the publisher's typographical copyright. They relate only to the posting of personal recordings.
And it's right to say that members should not assume that because they see recordings of a particular composer's works posted here it automatically means they can post their own, as this depends on whether the permission was granted for all works, or just for those issued by a particular publisher, and whether permission extends to all members or just to individuals. You can find a definitive list of permissions received here
(continuing into the next post). Universal permission from M. D. Pujol is listed there, so it's OK to post your piece in full.
