Score taken down for infringement of rights

Hello
I received the following email from MuseScore:
"Your score has been taken down

Yours sincerely,

In response, I filed a dispute thread as proposed, arguing that this work written in the sixteenth century has long been in the public domain (CPDL), as can be seen here:
http://www3.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Ecce_quomodo_moritur_justus_(Jacob_....
 
Besides, on the PDF downloaded from this site and from which I edited with Musescore, the following statement can be read in full:
"Copyright © 1999 by the Choral Public Domain Library (http://www.cpdl.org)
Edition may be freely distributed, duplicated, performed, or recorded."
 
I don't have an answer yet, but I would like to understand how I could usurp anyone's rights.

Pathetique Sonata under Game of Thrones, Really?

I just uploaded my Pathetique Sonata orchestration and I look at the search bar category and it says Game of Thrones. Um, the Pathetique Sonata, orchestral or not has no relation to Game of Thrones so why is it in that category?

Here is the score where you see a category that the music is irrelevant to:

It would be better to put it under Strings or Woodwinds than Game of Thrones. Or even better would be to add an Orchestral category and put it in that category.
