IMSLP is for public domain music . Public domain music is music for which the copyright has expired, and that varies country to country. IMSLP is based in Canada.
The notes that Bottesini wrote are not copyrighted any more, but the EDITIONS made by the publishers may still be. Most of the music on 4shared is still under copyright and technically illegal to post or share.
If you wanted to, you could make your own edition of the concerto and post it on IMSLP for everyone to use.
