Soundcloud is very obscure about this. I see covers on here. Us little guys can't exactly call Ed Sheeran up on his cell and ask if we can post a cover.
SO, that said, how about you make this easier for us?
Can we post a cover, or not?
Standardize or simplify the process, or, we will go elsewhere. I have no problem with paying royalties, but I am not going to let some corporate giants stifle my creativity, which includes my rendition of poplar songs.
I want a simple, direct answer from Soundcloud. Don't go complaining to me later, since I sought clarification.
If you stress me out, I will take my original music and covers elsewhere. I don't need you, Soundcloud.
