    musescore is tied to 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.

Finale even provides a program better than musescore for free, and Finale isn't stealing sheet music from living composers.
