"Personally I don't have much of a problem with them limiting the free version, you get what you pay for after all."

They already had storage limitations though. The three-device limit just seems like a strong-arm tactic to me. I was considering actually paying for a premium account, but incentives get my money, not coercion. I've since begun subscribing to a competitor for about $5 a month and removed the majority of my content from my Dropbox account. If that competitor changes policies unsatisfactorily, then I'll pack up my content and take it elsewhere again.
