MuseScore's Biggest Problem

in Piano

 
Musescore in a (not so recent) update stated that downloading and Printing scores is not only a Pro feature. According to their post, they explain that, " Musescore firmly believes in the rights of creators," and that you need to buy Pro to download it.

But, what they try to hide, is that people need to buy MuseScore Pro just to upload more than 10 Scores! It's so backward! You need Pro to download a Score, you need Pro to upload more. That sounds less like Creator Rights and more like a money grab.

What I admired about MuseScore was that it was one of the few popular Sheet Music places for people to get free music.

I may be sounding cheap for saying this, but the way MuseScore presents this doesn't make them sound much better.
