Shocked at Brixham Museum

Brixham's Non Conformist burial registers are held at Brixham Museum. Made an appointment to go in and see them with an aim to photographing them and transcribing them for us. Obviously was going to leave the Museum with the digital images and the transcript. Thought that would be a good thing.
They wouldn't let me! Would let me look at them but nothing else. Not copy or even transcribe.
Reason given that they are a source of income when people request information or copies.
Bit shocked really that our heritage is being held to ransom !
