Important Information about Copyright and Potential Disputes

The composition is now in the public domain. Copyrights of the recording, however, are held by Tong Chi-ling. On YouTube, it is common to get false Content ID matches and copyright claims on original performances of public domain work. This is because one performance of a work tends to sound similar to another. If you get such a claim, you should dispute it, stating:

The composition for the song being claimed (Prelude in E-flat Major, Op. 23, No. 6) is in the public domain worldwide. It was composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff in 1901-1903. The recording is an original recording produced by longzijun in 2012 and is performed by Tong Chi-ling, who is playing the original arrangement of the song. The recording is available for use for free for non-commercial purposes and in monetized YouTube videos that are otherwise non-commercial in nature as long as the music is properly credited, which I have done in the video description. The permission is given on the video page for the song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Sb34p3cbY0), on the producer’s website (https://longzijun.wordpress.com/2012/01/18/rachmaninoff-prelude-in-e-flat-major-op-23-no-6/) and on this ToS page (https://longzijun.wordpress.com/music/free-background-music-series-terms-of-use/).
