Soundcloud has been having a rough few months. It seems that every time a potential buyer has looked at their tinder profile a little but more in depth they have ultimately decided to swipe left. Then reports surfaced that the company might very well run out of cash before the end of the 2017. Now to add to their woes Soundcloud’s trademark and infamously shitty copyright detection software has attacked Martin Garrix for uploading one of his own tracks.
Now if you are playing along and keeping score with the Garrix vs. Soundcloud drama, this this is not the first time the streaming service has taken down one of Martin’s own tracks from his page for copyright infringement. Taking a look at the small screen grab Martin posted to twitter, it seems that this has happened at least 6 times before.

Let’s hope for the sake of Martin Garrix and his fans all over the world that Soundcloud can get this issue sorted out soon. For the greater good lets hope that Google goes through with their buyout of the streaming giant and turns things around in the area of copyright infringement detection.
