Dear Labels & Partners,
Sweet N Low announces its partnership with SoundCloud.
Delivery of content for fingerprinting:
This means we will be delivering your catalogue to SoundCloud for content fingerprinting. The purpose of this is to stop those that have no right uploading your content to their SoundCloud profiles. Content which is recognized as part of the
Rights management tools:
Whitelisting: Currently we can whitelist SoundCloud profiles belonging to our artists, labels and distributed labels: this allows account holders to upload their own content without having it blocked by SoundCloud’s content ID system. To obtain whitelisted status please contact your distributor representative.
Takedowns: If you find a profile that contains your content without having obtained the necessary licenses we can also issue a takedown notice using SoundCloud’s CMS system.
Access to exclusive partner tools:
Scheduling: You will be able to schedule when your content is to go live on SoundCloud. For example, if you are unavailable to manually make a track public you can upload the content and schedule it to go live at a specified date and time.
Geoblocking: You can lock your content so it can only be viewable, and played within certain territories. Useful if you have staggered release dates in different territories, or if you only own the rights for a certain territory.
Domain locking: You can lock your players / widgets to specific websites so they cannot be shared and played from any other websites. Go to http://domainlocking.soundcloud.com and log in with your account info, you can set limitations so that your content can only played from the domain/s you allow.
These partner tools (scheduling, domain locking, geoblocking) will be available on your label/s SoundCloud channel shortly AFTER we have whitelisted your profile.
