SoundCloud co-founder Alex Ljung said on stage at Le Web that users upload more than 10 hours of music every minute. That’s probably because SoundCloud serves as a great platform for independent artists to upload and share their tracks. It’s also a good resource for music lovers to discover tracks by lesser-known artists.
SoundCloud only allows users to upload their own original audio and music files, though who’s to say that some people aren’t uploading copyrighted tracks.
Soundcloud also just totally overhauled its website with new sharing, search, and “following” features.
