Our temporary online music sharing service, Share Music, ended December 31, 2020. Pepper worked with hundreds of publishers to allow expanded access to their copyrights temporarily to address the sudden and dramatic changes we all experienced for in-person gatherings in the spring of 2020. Currently, most institutions have found ways to engage in music-making in some form. Due to the agreements in place with publishers, J.W. Pepper’s Share Music service ended December 31, 2020. We thank every publisher who worked with us to temporarily relax their standard protections so you could access their materials with your classes and ensembles at a time of sudden and dramatic change.
Pepper understands your need to distribute music to your ensembles legally, and we are close to introducing a new feature that will allow you to do that. Building technologies that serve your needs while respecting creators’ and copyright owners’ legal rights is our goal. We’ll keep you informed about this exciting new feature in early 2021.
