Copyright only protects new and original creative expression. While some new arrangements and transcriptions of music may so qualify, (such as, for example, Paul Galbraith's transcriptions of Bach's "six solo" for violin to his eight string guitar) it is arguable that no copyright could be legitimately asserted on the simply mechanical act of rescoring an old work for the pitch of modern instruments.

The only problem with being a man of leisure is that you can never stop and take a rest.
