A track you composed with someone else was taken down for copyright infringement

Everyone who has worked on a track owns parts of the copyright of that track, and you’ll need everyone’s approval before you can upload them to SoundCloud. 

For example, if you wrote the lyrics for the track, you own the copyright to them. However, if you did not create the beat or instrumental backing, then someone else owns the copyright for that and they can request that its publication be blocked if you do not have their permission. 

If you are able to provide proof that you do have permission from the original’s rights holders for their part of the track to publish their content on SoundCloud, our Copyright Team is happy to manually review these permissions and reinstate the track onto your profile.
