To SoundCloud staff,
I've been a regular up loader and listener on sound cloud for over 5 years now and I've recently received some strikes on some of my uploads. I uploaded these mashups and tracks of licensed songs not being sure if I would receive strikes on them, because numerous users across the service upload mashups of songs that aren't theirs all the time so I figured it would be okay. Now is the third time I've received a strike (on a track that is over a year old) and I guess my account will be terminated.
The thing is I have some tracks on here that are my own works that I want to keep listening to for years to come and I can't download them because of the limitations placed on my account due to the strikes. Is there anything I can do or are my songs just going to be gone forever?
I'm trying not to be angry about the situation because I was warned, but it really is frustrating trying to understand what can and cannot be uploaded on sound cloud when there are users with millions of listens that upload unlicensed mashups all the time, and I'm receiving a strike on a song that I uploaded a very long time ago.
Thank you for your time. No matter what your response is, I appreciate it.
