Soundcloud: Read the fine print

soundcloud_150There is an interesting article on Hypebot that anyone who is using Soundcloud REALLY, REALLY needs to read. Most of us just roll our eyes and click accept when presented with the  pages long Terms and Conditions (TOS) for a site we want to use.  But when you are uploading and sharing your music, you need to be extra careful. That’s the digital equivalent of a contract you are signing when you click accept.

According to the article, the royalty-free license you are giving Soundcloud also covers publishing and third-party uploads. You might find that you are giving away a lot more rights than you bargained for.
