How to report a site using your tracks without your permission


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!

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.
Sergio.
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.
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Soundcloud Tracks Being Stolen.

Soundcloud is the only place on the internet I put my music, and I do not allow downloads. Without my permission, this website http://mp3drive.xyz/ is making all my public tracks here available to stream AND download. I'm no one special. I think they've ripped/stolen EVERY public track from everyone on Soundcloud. Can Soundcloud help?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Website Hosting Unauthorized Illegal Downloads Of My Music Through Soundcloud.

http://mp3.mygen.top/track/244182749/the-graver-slow-your-roll-the-green-raver-glitch-house-dubstep-...

is hosting a download of my song hosted through soundcloud, this song is not available for download anywhere on the internet, and this really upsets me. Not only are they offering a download but the link to the song goes through a ppc site. This is completely illegal and Soundcloud is responsible since it is hosted on Soundcloud.

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.

MP3-SoundCloud.download does not host and/or cache any audio/music files on our site.
All audio/music files that you download are uploaded by SoundCloud user(s) and hosted on SoundCloud server(s).


The above explains that Soundcloud has a breach in security and is allowing access to all files.
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Illegal Downloads.

These following sites have illegally download my songs, and are making them available for free download, through SoundCloud http://fastmp3.me/n8btzgr8-so-23065280.htm. http://redmp3.cc/20631047/n8btzgr8-so.html. https://mp3.groovy.mx/artist/n8btzgr8. And SounDownload.com. And that's just the 1st page of my search. Funny thing is I researched this issue in the SC forum only to find out, people were having issues 6 months ago!! Yet nothing was apparently resolved, so whats really going on with SoundCloud? Is there something in it for them?
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Ilegal music download (really serious) ITS NOT ABOUT SOUNDCLOUD ITSELF.

I've found a site where you, supposedy, can download music for free, and I found my musics there (I only have it here and I NEVER made them able for download).

This is the link with my musics:

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


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.

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?
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Original content appearing on 3rd party unauthorised websites!.

It would appear that there is ongoing illegal music distribution of original underground soundcloud artists! Upon inspection of statistics there appear to be many various websites and strange apps popping up which are linking to my music! Since my music is original content I have the rights to these productions and compositions. Now I would like to distribute my content for free at this point in my career but I would like soundcloud.com to be the primary and only portal for people to access my content through. It is disappointing to think that other people are illegally entrepreneuring relatively unknown artists on 3rd party websites and potentially making a profit from it when I myself have not made a single cent in profits from my own artistic creations yet. This is very disappointing and unacceptable. My music is free and thats the way it should be, but I still own all artistic copyrights to my original content and the fact that this is happening is just not good enough. What are options in stopping this from happening or potentially pursuing legal action against these 3rd party websites. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Kindest Regards.

In short. NO! There is nothing anyone can do. The music system is wrecked from criminals and the industry itself and underground artists can't ever really succeed online or gain the exposure they deserve regardless of how good their music is or how talented they are. It's all corrupt.

Indeed they have. The entire system would appear to have been cloned multiple times by multiple websites which are most likely profiteering off of underground artists and famous artists not through the music itself but from advertisement profits. Advertisement and these rubbish criminal 3rd party websites are evil.
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...

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?

My question is serious INDEED. After a a persusal of the Web through Google, using the title for my Music which is posted on your site, mainly OBSESSIVE FANTASY FOR STRING QUARTET, I have found nearly 36 sites that are offering my music for download, often effacing my name from my music and even offering it for ringtone. WHAT DOES SOUNDCLOUD DO IN THESE CASES? I am victim of theft of intellectual property! And most of the sites present links with the photos I have posted with my music on SoundCloud. All one needs do is write OBSESSIVE FANTASY FOR STRING QUARTET on Google and you will find these sites, often accompanied by malware. I am registered with SIAEI Italy and for some of my music Copyright UK. I will certainly warn them also. I have screeshoted them all. I do not want to retrieve my music from your site, because it has given me much exposure and to a degree, success. But what I have discovered is too much to be borne. I need and demand some sort of protection!

Hi Gaby,

Please review the original response on this conversation to learn more on the matter. We're just as concerned about this as you are, and our Trust & Safety team is working to improve security measures around this at all times.
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Creating soundcloud music aggergation website for playback usage..

Hello,

I've read your API's Terms and Conditions, and quoting:
Please also bear in mind that all User Content available over the SoundCloud®️ API has been created and uploaded by users. We expect all of our users only to upload content to which they own or control the relevant rights, but we cannot give you any guarantee that this will always be the case. This is explained further in the Liability for User Content section below. Regardless of any permissions set by any Uploader with respect to any User Content, you must not use the SoundCloud®️ API, or any User Content accessible via the SoundCloud®️ API, for any of the following purposes:
to create a page, profile, channel or other online presence dedicated to one or more specific artists or set of repertoire
to create any kind of alternative digital content service, including: any service that aggregates and streams User Content from multiple users into an on-demand listening service, or any playback experience which aggregates and streams User Content with content from other services (e.g. SoundCloud with YouTube)
Given these points from your ToS (https://developers.soundcloud.com/docs/api/terms-of-use#privacy ) I would like to hear back how is it possible to run websites like:

http://whyd.com/ - that's exactly what it does - it aggregates music that's added by community, it allows search and playback like from here http://whyd.com/search?q=twenty%20one%20pilots (you can filter by service in upper right corner)

http://www.hillydilly.com/ - same idea, but doesn't use youtube as I checked.

Are these websites running legally? It's basically against your ToU (ToS)
