Change your copyright policy

Soundcloud was a great promotion tool for musicians. Unfortunatly,
with their new copyright policy, even original content can be flagged as copyrighted content, removed from their website and account from the artists can be closed.

Bootlegs, mashups are not allowed anymore, despite the facts that people who make them don't earn money from them and that some of the biggest artists support them.

Account are flagged for spam even when we send just a few non-spam messages.
All we want is that soundcloud change their copyright policy, users pay their premium accounts and they must have the services they paid for.

All we want is a real promotion tool, like it was the case over the past years, and not a website just to have fancy audio players.

IF YOU AGREE WITH THIS PETITION, PLEASE SHARE IT ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER, OR ANY SOCIAL NETWORK.

THANK YOU !

      Thanks to the 4051 people who signed my petition against soundcloud copyright policy, listeners, djs, producers, label managers...
      Here is an article published a few days ago musicweek.com:
      http://www.musicweek.com/news/read/over-2-000-premium-soundcloud-users-demand-copyright-policy-change/054301
      As usual, soundcloud don't care about their users and it looks like they don't want to change anything so lot of tracks will be removed...Without us soundcloud wouldn't exist, it's time to show them that they're going the wrong way ! There is other solution than delete everything, they could sort a royalties deal like Mixcloud and others. Music is an art wether it's mixes, mashups, bootlegs, remixes...and shouldn't be restricted in any way ! So keep sharing the petition with your friends ! Thanks !

      Hola, que tal!!

      cabe mencionar que el echo de esta peticion no es importante para unos cuantos, digo que tal vez alncanza la tasa de la mayoria de las personas en el mundo que compartimos musica en este sitio, en el estilo de musica Electronica, dentro del movimiento conocemos a mas DJs gracias a los Remixes" , aclaro que, soy conciente del simpe echo de los derechos de autor, de la forma en como se organiza,mediante Labels o Productoras, que son ellos quienes llegan a ser afectados dicen entre comillas " porque al fin y al cabo el simple echo de que sea un remix, no se les va venir abajo la tasa de compro de cierto track! , o por el simple echo de que el Remix sea Gratis, siendo trabajo de otro, aunque la verdad el animo de lucro que viene implementando SoundCloud ah sido bastante grande, en donde la Musica es lo que nos une, y nos hace descubrir bastantes artistas, para mi lo importante" es ... A que esta limitada la Musica? o para quienes esta Limitada? La musica se ah ido desarrollando a lo largo de nuestro tiempo evolucionando a grandes escalas, y pienso yo que, la ah echo no solo para que sea limitada a unos pocos... La Musica nos une como personas..... o que es importante para ustedes...

      simplemente los derechos? yo no lo creo..... aunque cabe mas que decir al respecto......

      because I cant upload mashups, even though we give credit to the actual artists of the songs used in it, we actually took time to mash two or more songs together in order to create one.
