This sequence appears to be something like the number of pairs (i,j) with 1 <= i <= j <= n such that the product is composite.

So 4 is counted twice in your set, both as 1*4 and as 2*2. There’s a comment about this in the discussion history, but it didn’t make it to the published sequence. 

So a(4)=7 with {1*4, 2*2, 2*3, 2*4, 3*3, 3*4, 4*4}.
