Musopen is an online library of public domain music recordings and sheet music, launched by Aaron Dunn in 2005. It aims to "set music free" through providing music to the public free of charge, without copyright restrictions.

In 2008, Musopen released newly-commissioned recordings of the 32 Beethoven piano sonatas into the public domain.[2]
