SoundCloud has also pulled tracks that I've posted which were from 75 year old
recordings of dead composers because the timings on some titles matched some
known recent recordings of the same works. They later reinstated the tracks
(after my protest) but since they were from complete suites, their absence was
a problem. (As well, I only wanted to share with individuals or a couple of
groups but SoundCloud seemed wide open to the world so I got rid of it. pCloud
presents no such problems. I never post on YouTube.)
