It has recently been reported that Universal Studios have been give the right to remove any content off of Soundcloud that they believe is breaching copyright laws. This is all from a recent Email published online.
When a user had been told his account was going to be closed due to copyright, Soundcloud claimed they had no part in it.
“Your uploads were removed directly by Universal. This means that SoundCloud had no control over it, and they don’t tell us which part of your upload was infringing.“
“The control of removing content is completely with Universal. This means I can’t tell you why they removed your uploads and not others, and you would really need to ask them that question.“
Check out the two emails that were sent below.
