Thanx Alan. Very illuminating. I'll forward your message to the
list (it bounced since you're not a member) and I'll also forward
the previous posts in the thread just for your information.

The article, or maybe it was a press release, by which we found
out about this case, didn't really make it clear enough, in my
opinion, the crux of the case, which you explain in your message.
In fact from the article I interpreted it almost in the opposite
sense, thinking that the problem was that the court was ignoring
the rights to the notated score. But now I see that they're
ignoring non-mechanical rights to the parts of the piece that
aren't strictly notated. I'm pretty familiar with the idea of
extended instrumental techniques in jazz and other musics which
create sounds (original sounds!) that can't be written down
specifically on a score, so I can see how this is a pretty
serious problem.

Anyway, thanx again and best of luck,
