Since your remix is based on another creator's track, you'll need permission from the original creator and any other relevant rights holders before you can upload and publish your remix online. While some producers and publishers are fine with SoundCloud members using their material, some others are not and do not want their works used or altered without explicit consent. With Creative Commons licenses, creators have the choice to give up certain exclusive rights normally associated with copyright, while retaining others. Although you, as the creator of the remix have chosen to give up certain of these exclusive rights associated with copyright, the original creator of the track you used still owns the copyright for the original track, and you will need their explicit permission to publish your cover version on SoundCloud.

uploading on soundcloud w/o being copyrighted?
Because the rights afforded by copyright law are exclusive to the copyright owner s , you will infringe copyright if you make use of the copyrighted work without the permission of the copyright owner s - for example, if you copy or adapt a copyright work, or make it available on the internet. Simple as that. If you do use someone else's work, make sure you have the necessary permissions — this will usually take the form of a license from the copyright owner s , which you may have to pay for. There are certain instances where you may be able to use excerpts of copyrighted material without a license — for example, if you use a small part of someone else's work for the purposes of criticism or review, or if your use constitutes "fair use" under applicable law particularly U. If you intend to use any part of a copyright work in reliance on any of the statutory exceptions, you should seek legal advice first.
If you use parts of a track in a DJ set, please bear in mind that the original creator owns the copyright for that part in your track and, based on current copyright legislation, you will need their explicit permission to upload your DJ mix on SoundCloud. Some producers and publishers are fine with others using their material in DJ sets, but some are not and do not want their works altered or distributed without their explicit consent. If you are able to provide proof that you do have permission from the original rights holders to publish their material in your DJ mix on SoundCloud, our Copyright Team is happy to manually review these permissions and reinstate the track onto your profile.
