MIDI in free software

Postby f00bar » Fri Sep 01, 2017 8:37 am

Yesterday, I got a copyright question [1] on my GitHub repo for my MIDI SDK. I want to know how free software projects handle such problems. In short:

Is it legal to list all constants except the General MIDI 2 program names that way, given that I make it clear that this is not the official MIDI reference
The same question, but for the General MIDI 2 program names
If the answer to both of these questions are negative, how do Libre MIDI software cope with these issues?

I thought MIDI would work in a similar way as OpenGL, and my SDK is very similar to GLEW. But it looks like I may be wrong on this point.
