- The change comes after negotiations for the company's paid service, SoundCloud Go.
DJ mixes will no longer be taken down from SoundCloud for copyright infringement.
As Dancing Astronaut reports, SoundCloud founder Eric Wahlforss told Groove that while negotiating terms for SoundCloud Go, the company reached deals with licensing groups like GEMA to allow for DJ mixes to stay on the site. In recent years, some artists and DJs had their mixes (and, in some cases, whole accounts) removed from SoundCloud for containing copyrighted material. SoundCloud Go is the streaming platform's recently-implemented paid subscription model meant to compete with other services like Spotify and Apple Music.
