SoundCloud is a global online audio distribution platform that enables its users to upload, record, promote, and share their originally-created sounds.
In August 2015, SoundCloud was threatened to be pursued through the courts for unpaid royalties.
In February 2016, a report casted “significant doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.”
Upon these news, Archive Team now considers SoundCloud a service in danger, and as it hosts a lot of original content, finds it important to prepare to save it selectively (a full grab would be too big and would raise concerns of mass copyright infringement).
Thus, a discussion has started in the(on EFnet) channel.
As of April 2017 the 128k MP3 streams of all public tracks on SoundCloud total 855TB.
