Subject: RE: Vast archive of music theory PDFs
I've come to the conclusion that no one need ever buy any more sheet music/books, as everything ever written is on the net somewhere.

It's certainly seems to be going that way but there's still stuff for which - if you want a proper/authentic arrangement - the sheet music is still handy to buy, and it's not too expensive. This is particularly true for some of the stuff from the 1930s and 1940s. Older material, such as ragtime and cakewalks, is often available in academic sheet music archives.
