Issue about copyright of MuseScore uploading

I'm wondering if one can upload ANY score they want on MuseScore. (because on MuseScore.com I've seen tons of scores of pop songs which are of course copyright-perserved)
I have a score that's adapted from a copyright-perserved score which was bought from online shops whom we promised that the score would not be of any commercial usage. After my embellishment the score was used in our choir contest, which is the reason why it's so memorable to us. I really want to upload it on MuseScore so that everyone can see and enjoy the score again, so I'm here to ask whether I can do that. I would very much like to hear from developers or any expert that knows well in this field about copyright. Thousands of thanks to you.

Il existe de nombreux types de robes longues

Mais si vous vous considérez comme "court" 
Robeyou
,  vous voudrez porter une robe de cocktail qui ressemble à une robe  longue et longue. Ici, je voudrais parler de quelques conseils sur le  choix de la longueur de la robe, en fonction de votre taille. Cette  explication vient de ma propre observation. Donc, vous pouvez simplement  l'utiliser comme référence. 

 Une longue robe a déjà une bonne réputation lors de soirées  officielles. C'est élégant et féminin et une robe d'apparence plus  formelle qui ne semble pas bon marché ou décontractée. La robe longue  est une valeur sûre pour le bal des finissants. Cependant, en raison de  sa longueur, le corps plus court ne semble pas charmant et lent. Si vous  n'êtes pas assez grand, la robe dominera sur vous. Je recommande la  robe longue pour les candidats moyens à grands.
Il existe de  nombreux types de robes longues, telles que: Par exemple, les robes  empire à taille haute, le fourreau ou la longue robe de bal. Les robes  longues suivantes peuvent souvent être trouvées au bal de fin d’année:  Les robes à col en v sont le choix parfait si la couleur de votre peau  est blanche et que votre corps est mince. Cette robe vous fera paraître  plus nette et plus charmante. Les robes à une épaule sont lorsque vous  voulez avoir l'air excitant à la fête. Il est asymétrique et semble  sauvage mais unique.
 

 

Ok... here's what's happening...

Ok… after a long time, I’ll start the first competition with this:
You need to compose a song in a 5/4 time signature. Nothing else, just this.
I haven’t seen many songs with this odd time signature, so try and get creative.

Due date: 30/4/19
—Prizes—
If you win, you'll get to be in the 'Hall Of Fame' (under construction, due to be open at 29/4) and the banner will congratulate you until the next competition.

Ok, if this seems like the RSA competition, I talked this with Rebecca... and I wanted to open a competition group under the RSA name... but since she already started a competition, I decided to start a seperate group. You can tell me if you have a better idea for the prizes. 


Don't be put off by some long, lengthy composition. A short one has an equal chance of winning as a long one (tho- not too long eg. 20 pages, because that's not fun- at all).

--Judges--
Due to the small (but growing) group, I'll take the first judge that offers, but cannot participate (because it wouldn't be fair, would it?). If you want to be a judge, you have to have messages enabled so we can talk about things. :D

Question...

How important, in your opinion, is a professional teacher/organized classes to developing one's compositional talent?
There's a lot of wonderful self-taught composers and musicians out there, but is there a point where "self-taught" can become an excuse to be lazy and undisciplined, just writing whatever sounds good to you whenever you feel like it?
On the other hand, can traditional classes interfere with one's ability to compose freely, where you can pour your time and energy into the music you love without going through the motions to get a good grade? 

A Composition Exercise

I came across this thread about a composition exercise ---> https://musescore.com/groups/29328/discuss/5032409 and found it rather interesting and worth a try.

Basically...

Composition exercise by the Polish composer Karol Szymanowski(1882-1937) given to his student.

It goes as follows:
16 bars divided into 4x4 bar segments
Tonic chord at the beginning
At bars 7/8 modulate to dominant(in major) or relative major(in minor)
In bars 9/10 write a sequence
In bars 11/12 write another sequence
In bars 13/14 thematic return should occur
In bar 16 coda
And at the bottom: "best subdominant, dominant and tonic, perfect cadence."

Do upload your scores should you try them out!
