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.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for letting us know about those sites - I've forwarded these internally already. Please see above (original post) to learn how to report a site directly to our Trust & Safety team for future reference.

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?

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 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?

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

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.

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.

remember when you leave you cannot report these thieves...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.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Yall allow people to steal music and act like u cant do nothin about it.
My files are available to download as they are linked and visible from Soundcloud on more sites e.g. musicdata.site without my permission....I thought I have only business with Soundcloud for free listening, but my file have not been listened for months because it is downloaded without my permission on the web sites linked to Soundcloud.I think I have to delete my files from Soundcloud but a lot of people downloaded them and I am sure that they use them for commercial purpose....My topic is for information and for advice - .I will delete the files but what happened with the stolen files that are mine?And if I delete my files in order to stop the download, I don't have proof that all this happened and the files are mine and the web sites abuse in this case.
Hi Kalina,

I am in a similar situation and the site that has done it to me is http://djsbuzz.net/artist/confusioninmotionuk and there is no way to contact them without setting up an account, like your music they have made my music available for download so i have the same question as you and i hope we will get some answers to this. As it should not be happening and like you i don't really want to have to remove my music of soundcloud and move it else where?

Hello!

I found out that some of the fake accounts and promo bullshit stuff is coming from "users" of a website named madnessdeals.com. Is there a possibility that someone can eliminate the connection to this? Or better say: destroy this mentioned website and other similar pages like this??

It's just frustrating to get pseudo likes and repost by people (EVERYTIME!) who are not really serious checking out the music/sounds someone is uploading on Soundcloud. This isn't fun! Always such a corrupt and unfair thing, I'm sure these promo/fake users also get paid for an activity like this. How do they even search and find latest uploads so fast? Don't they have other and better things to do?

It's annoying to just block these people each individually and hope that they will disappear. Half of these blocked people still exist.

Hope someone can help. Thanks
you cant' do nothing the same happened to me now my soundcloud went from 1700 to 3000 fake followers.. 😞
I have discovered that my music is being taken from my soundcloud page and being sold by a record label under the name of another artist on iTunes, Amazon, Beatport, Spotify and a host of other sites. They have "copyrighted" the music to this other artist, denying me the right to use my own work, which is completely illegal.

I can prove the original compositions are mine - they were uploaded to my soundcloud profile prior to the album's release (and the fake artist has no previous work anywhere to be found). That alone should prove my copyright claim.

I have written to Soundcloud, and the main sites the music is being sold on, and have not received any response from any of them as yet.

How do I get these music sites and the record company to stop taking my work and selling it someone else's name?
I should add, that because the record company has claimed the "copyright" for my work, I am unable to do anything with my own creations. I can't post them to youtube or anywhere else, without violating "their" rights.

It's crazy that this has happened. I didn't know something like this was possible until it happened to me.
I'd get a lawyer and would confront these guys directly. You're wasting time, waiting for soundcloud to do something. Maybe they won't even be able to do something.
Hello, I am very frustrated by the spammers like http://madnessdeals.com. Why won't you protect your paying users Soundcloud? For every post I make, I receive more than one spam message that I have to delete...

I would like to use my soundcloud account (pro unlimited user) for educational purposes though I do not feel safe sharing an account with elementary students when spammers make daily posts to my account. Nothing from my perspective has been done so I do not plan on renewing my paid for service. Will Soundcloud improve? What other services would you all suggest for hosting online recordings for an elementary music teacher?
