How to report a site using your tracks without your permission


Userlevel 2
Hello,

If you have come across a third party application that is using the SoundCloud API, and you suspect that it violates SoundCloud’s API Terms of Use, then please let us know by contacting us and selecting Trust & Safety from the drop down menu on our Help Centre.

When reporting an application please make sure to provide us with a link to the application (whether that’s a link to a direct website, or to the app in a major App Store). We will need this link in order to use the application, and review it’s functionality.

Our team will then review the applications reported to us and take action against any application which violates our Terms of Use.

Thanks for helping out!

Ed

Hello Everyone,

I am an independent DJ/Musician here on SoundCloud and I would like for people to know about what has been brought to my attention from a fellow SoundCloud user.
There is a website called SounDownload .com and they have some how gained access to EVERY SoundCloud profile and has their music available for FREE Download.
The problem is, I don't want my songs available for downloading that's why I configured my account for no downloads. EVERY one's songs are available on this site for FREE.

I've included some screenshots of the home page to the site and my profile as it looks on their site. I never signed up with these people either so how can I have a profile with them?

What can we do about this? What can SoundCloud do about this?

Thank You

Different sites have copied or downloaded my mixes, and are offering them free. I haven't offered free downloads on Sound Cloud. How can these sites do this without my permission?

These two sites above, are the sites down loading my mixes from sound cloud, and giving them away as free downloads from their sites.
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled zippyfire.com? How can this be ok?.

There is a site called zippyfire.com that seems to have crawled soundcloud and allows downloads of all the tracks. Even if downloads are off? Go there do a search and see, can the Soundcloud staff do something abut this?

Stolen music is unacceptable. It would be great if there was a feature allowing us to encrypt our songs to prevent them from being stolen. I realize this is the internet and it's difficult to prevent, but i find this kind of thing regularly happening to my original music.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Kinoman.

Hello, all my songs are on http://www.kinoman.az/en/music/search?q=sergio+guarneri
without permission. I have made a new song yesterday "William" and immediately it appears on the site. Nobody can listen to my song on Soundcloud. No counter is incremented. Only when I play a song from Kinoman site.
I've already reported the problem to Soundcloud Security Service but nothing has changed.
Thanks for helping.
Hello.

Hello Community & Soundcloud Moderators:

I too have been finding other sites who mimic my legit Soundcloud page. This site has taken all my uploaded tracks and are now displaying them on their site with your logo's. They never asked me to use them and I did not authorize any permissions to satisfy their ego's. This clown has a link: http://www.kinoman.az/en/music/listen/215492422?q=%23bass

Searching ones name in a search engine pulls up these 'Mimic' websites. I have found several others
and when contacted, I was ignored.

I am glad they like the recordings and want to have them but It's not nice that they flat out steal them
from my entrusted sacred and soundcloud network.

I would really like to find the solutions regarding this problem. I appreciate all you can do.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Sounds app is violating the terms of SoundCloud API agreement..

This application SOUND APP is violating the terms of SoundCloud api Agreement. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sounds-app-discover-share/id852318295?mt=8

This app allows the users to take any track from soundcloud - make a 15 second video with the track and save the video on the phone. They also have enabled sharing to other social networks so you easily can share the stolen music without the owners approval. SoundCloud have previously stated that this is not legal.

Also they are charging users to remove the "Sound app" logo on the videos for... 4.99 USD

I have previously asked SoundCloud for the rights to store sounds from SoundCloud on a 15s video, you can read the conversation here: =16191522#reply_16191522]https://www.soundcloudcommunity.com/soundcloud/topics/create-own-video-with-sound-from-soundcloud?ut...

Alright here we go...(Note that these may not be using the API, but still have a sole purpose of stealing songs on Soundcloud that are not free downloads).

http://soundcloud-download.com/

http://sounddrain.com/

http://soundflush.com/

http://soundcloudtomp3.org/

http://soundcloudload.com/

http://sc-downloader.com/

http://soundtake.net/

http://www.soundcloudsave.net/ (THIS ONE Actually scripts a Download button to the Soundcloud page! Crazy, right?)

http://soundcloud-downloader.software.informer.com/ (NOT a site, but a product)

http://soundcloudripper.com/

http://soundcloudomatic.com/

http://scdownload.net/

http://www.sounddrain.org/

http://www.soundcloud-mp3.net/

There's a bunch more out there but these are the ones I could find. Again, these don't use the Soundcloud API, I know, but they still only have one purpose: Taking songs for free, when they should be paid for. Hope this helps you guys.

Best,
Andrew (Alias AM)

EDIT: Here are some I found that DO use the API.

http://www.scmp3.com/

Hi, someone found this site on reddit http://www.mp3plist.com which mirrors soundcloud's content and looks like it charging money for tracks and offering them as a download. What can I do or what can soundcloud do to prevent this?
