This isn't really a typical problem. My problem is that I just found a SoundCloud Downloader being featured in the Chrome Extensions list. This is extremely concerning for me as I can't have my music getting downloaded by people at a time when I may decide to monetize it (not that it's ready for that yet).

It looks like what they're doing from a dev standpoint is that they are forcing the standard download button (and thus functionality) to appear whether the user wanted the song to be downloadable or not. If this is not remedied, I'll have to leave this service. I'm not an expert on your systems your team is using but I would think it might not be a bad idea to add a small checker into the server side of the function to ensure that the user actually wanted the song to be downloadable in the first place. Like, grab the user/song info from the database, if the user wanted the song to be downloadable then permit the download, else send an error.

That's just my suggestion, you know your system so you can decide what is the best but I'll tell you now, this should not be taken lightly. Hit this now before it gains too much steam because now I'm legitimately concerned who may be downloading my music when I am not ready to be permitting that kind of thing yet.

If your a member of PRS they have a new Internet Investigation Officer called Sharan Ghuman and an anti-piracy MAPS system you can use to report this.

Within hours of entering The Songwriting Academy contest my song was available free from 3 Indonesian websites, a clear infringment of my copyright ownership. Be careful what you make available and beware.

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?

This site keeps taking all of my mixes and are offering them for free downloads.
Also I posted about 10 other sites

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Found my track on a downloadable site.

I found one of my tracks on this website, http://calientalo.com/mp3-download-best+music+western/. It is Trailer Music | Western. It says you can "download mp3". I did not consent to this, although I know there are websites you can download tracks on, this was surprising to me. I do not allow downloading of my tracks on my Soundcloud account, never have. Is there a way to block websites such as these?

I have seen pages like musiclody.com sharing my tracks to download despite I have disabled the download option on Soundcloud. How can I prevent this situation?
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How is my music being downloaded illegally.

How can I stop from my music being downloaded illegally off of Soundcloud? Every single track I have disabled for download on Soundcloud, I have found on free downloading sites. I know that some of these songs are exclusively from Soundcloud as it is the only site it is on. I am frustrated that I can no longer trust Soundcloud to keep my music from being illegally downloaded. Whats the point of having the disable downloading feature if it doesn't even work?

Promoteurmusic.com is spamming my site. Is there anything that can be done in lieu of battling the bots one posting at a time? They are using FewPlays.com & finestbros.com as well.

Thank you in advance.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled gentleflowmp3 and other pages.

Hello there!

I don't want to have my soundcloud tracks to be downloadable. And through my account stats I can see from where the views/listenings are coming, like gentleflowmp3 or mp3juices or whatever where anybody can download my stuff. How can I block this connection between my uploaded SC tracks and these kind of (third party?) pages? Does somebody re-upload all my tracks on these pages or is that automatically procedure?

Also, sometimes people seem to find my tracks via YouTube (I don't upload anything there) and when I click on the links of it, these YT pages don't exist. What is going on there? Hope you can help me.

Thanks.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Unauthorized downloads??.

A friend of mine recently sent me a link he found when trying to find one of my tracks by doing a google search. I never allow my tracks to be downloadable. I've see other sites like this one before claiming the same thing.

My question is: Is this site really able to bypass my download settings in SoundCloud? Anyway to stop this?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Private tracks are showing up on a website!? Help!!.

A quick search for my band name in a music magazine website revealed that it has automatically posted many of our private demos that are on Soundcloud but which have always been private and therefore they have no way to access them.

I remember applying to a festival on the website about a year ago, and adding our social media links, but never the passwords or agreeing to any access of this sort. This is clearly a hole or bug in Soundcloud privacy, how can I solve this? Thank you very much.

Track posted on music website

Track set as private on Soundcloud and always has been


I followed this protocol to remove the track from the third party site.
It left the tracks up but disabled play and download.

1 tracks
2 edit
3 permissions
4 turn off ALL first five.

It seem unless this is follow a third party site without permission can offer a track both for play back and down load.

If I had not upgraded my account to pro, I would not of had a clue this was happening.
Lets say I was making money from music and released a single and posted it to soundcloud.
It would have available for free on multiple sites for free, now you are beginning to monetise soundcloud you really need to resolve the massive hole in your system.

Hi there,

I cannot seem to play the track on the page that you've posted actually - have you removed the track? It certainly is weird that they were able to fetch information about your private tracks. I have forwarded it to the relevant team for review. Other than that, please see the original post to learn how to report a site like the one you found to our Trust & Safety team.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled people being able to download my sets without permission.

I find it ridiculous that people can download my music from soundcloud onto download sites on the internet, even tho all my permissions are off & the embed codes are only available to me, i spend £1000's on my collection & for people to be able to download soundclound content onto download sites & then upload onto soundcloud again using there own page names, this needs sorting, so maybe i think i need a change from soundcloud if the contents on my page are not protected, i pay my subscription FOR WHAT?, it is ridiculous that people can just take what sets they want & use them as there own. soundcloud definitely needs to sort its permissions side out, whats the point in removing embed codes when its so easy to take sets & use them as there own.... PISSED OFF

It seem the only way around this is to pull all your music off soundcloud or only upload a small sample of your track?

What is a great forum to share your music has become a way of giving it away as free downloads.

So far soundcloud have not been able or willing to stop this happening, this is a copy of my last answer from them.

2. SoundCloud uses the most widely supported streaming protocol to ensure your sounds can be played everywhere, by everyone, across the web. When someone hits play on a track, the technology behind this streaming protocol is put into action to make sure your track can be played. By using a streaming technology which is widely supported, we can make sure that your content is playable on all devices, and browsers. Unfortunately, there are browser add ons that are exploiting vulnerabilities which are inherent in this streaming technology, which allows them to rip the stream.

This means that they are not downloading the original file you have uploaded with us, but in stead the streamed audio (which is 128 kbps). This is the downside to using a system which allows you to be heard by everyone, everywhere. We are researching alternative streaming technologies to understand how secure they are, how well supported they are, and whether they can reliably stream content. We hope the work being done in this area will allow us to provide the most reliable, widely supported and secure means of streaming content.

While we are doing all we can to improve this situation, there are a number of measures you may want to consider to prevent unauthorized downloads of your content. While we cannot guarantee that this will stop these sites from accessing your content without your permission, it will put you in the best position possible to prevent people from downloading content without your consent.

  • If you have not done so already, disable downloads on your tracks. Like this: http://bit.ly/1nBVMyr
  • Disable app playback, so that your track will not be playable outside of the SoundCloudplatform and our own apps (i.e. the official SoundCloud iOS and Android apps). There's more information on how to do this here: http://bit.ly/1P2uHO5
We hope this helps to provide further clarification. More information on how to report sites or apps of that nature can be found here

I am considering closing my soundcloud pro account, I don't make music for money but this is madness.
