Did you receive a notification that your track has been removed from our platform due to copyright complaints?
Here’s what happened:
We receive copyright claims from organisations like RIAA and IFPI every day. The companies are actually scanning the internet and platforms like DemoDrop for tracks that infringe copyright for artists that they represent.
If they find track(s) that belong to their artists they send us a take down notice, and we are forced to remove the track.

We offer the ability to upload remixes and mashups, but actually a lot of remixes and mashups are infringing copyright of other tracks and/or artists.
This means that when we receive reports about tracks that are infringing copyright(s), which we do every day, we are forced to take those tracks down, your account receives a penalty and we also block those tracks permanently for future uploading.
If you’ve received multiple penalties related to your account we can close down your DemoDrop account without notice.
The DMCA reports we receive are done automatically by bots that are crawling the internet for organisations like RIAA and IFPI.
