I've been rather disappointed with your treatment of copyright issues lately. More of my liked sounds have been taken down in the last week than in the rest of my time on Soundcloud (working on four+ years now). They're all great remixes of fairly popular songs, such as What Do You Mean or The Hills, so I understand that there could be copyright/fair-use issues here. However, they are far from the only remixes of those songs on this site, and yet other ones (which could not possibly have use permission from the artist simply based on the fact that the remixing artists are infinitesimal) have been up for considerable amounts of time when the popular ones were taken down days after being posted. This is just frustrating to be honest. I know your hands are tied in terms of the law, but at least enforce those laws fairly and don't just go after popular infractions and let bad ones slide. Also, I've had a song disappear from the desktop site and yet still be playable on my phone. This case is especially weird because it was a remix of an Autograf song, and they are not the type to make a claim on a remix. I'm not sure if that's just a bug, but either way it's certainly frustrating as well.
I love your service and you've done a great job over the past four years I've spent with you guys. Every issue I've reported has seen timely response and almost instantaneous action, which is a rare thing for a site of your size. I really don't want to say goodbye, but with plenty of other sites out there providing the same service, I could see that happening if this trend of restricting creativity and removing songs persists. I'm fairly certain those are not the ideals this site was built upon and I'm scared of the direction it's going in. I know you really don't care about the ramblings of one college student who doesn't even have a premium account, but I feel this needed to be said and I really want to see this site flourish as the center for creativity and freedom in the music industry. Thanks for reading this, if you did, and I hope that you take these words to heart. Have a great day.
