musescore is tied to pianofiles.com. The people who started both companies have done more harm to living composers than any one in the history of music. They have turned distribution of published works over to sneak thieves on their sites. This takes money away from living composers and keeps new works from entering the market. This is selfish beyond any crime I can think of short of murder. Thomas Bonte and Werner Schweer are cowards and sneaks hiding behind the stupidity of their site members. No two people have done more harm to the musical arts in modern times. There are already excellent notation software programs. Finale even provides a program better than musescore for free, and Finale isn't stealing sheet music from living composers. I am a long-term and well established musician, composer, educator, and publisher. I tell you again the people behind musescore are thieves of the worst kind. FAQ for PianoFiles.com Is your personal information safe on pianofiles.com? No. A growing coalition of composers, publishers and distributors are collecting pianofiles member profiles that include IP addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, and e-mails. What is pianofiles.com? A sheet music theft and counterfeiting website that deals in illegally copied editions of compositions by living composers. How can I get the sheet music I'm looking for? Honest people simply buy sheet music at a music store, order it on line, or go to a library. Is trading on pianofiles.com legal? The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of a copyrighted work is illegal. Criminal copyright infringement, including infringement without monetary gain, is investigated by the FBI and is punishable by up to five years in federal prison and a fine of 250 thousand dollars.
