    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1366809809.199324.jpg is this what sound cloud looks like when it won't let you post a set because it may contain copyrighted material?

    yea. i hear if you add a sample in the beginning, it clears. like a quick 5 second sample. I always just add a name drop before my mix. it ends up clearing.

    I have heard this before, but didnt do it on my last upload and it went through, no issues....

    However, three months down the line, I get an email saying that it contains copyrighted material, and so has been removed. Hmmmm. Might find somewhere else to go....

    Leave a 5 second gap at the beginning of your mixes. Soundcloud only check the first 2-3 seconds for copyright breaches. This should solve your problem.

    Why is this a surprise to anyone?

    Why are people surprised when they break the law or the rules of Soundcloud. It is not permitted to upload copyrighted music... period. Doesn't matter if we dislike it, that's the way it is.

    There are ways of getting round the copyright check and they are documented on this forum.

    The problem is that Soundcloud isn't responsive when issues arise. I know a classical recording engineer who posts mixed/mastered preview versions up on a paid account set to private, just to show clients and see if they're happy with how it sounds and he has had his uploads taken down on several occasions even though it's things he recorded himself - just because the music uses a score that is copyrighted, but his clients have paid for.

    Many emails back and forth and he has never been able to get around the issue so now he just hosts it all himself on his home machine.
