    This said Free Download and to sign up to download it. After signing up, it changed to Upgrade to Download. This is deceptive, wrong and immoral.

      I'm sorry for the confusion there, Richard. Are you able to confirm where you saw this listed as free? It's definitely a premium resource and should be saying 'upgrade to download' when not logged in to a paid account.
