Apple Music gains support for user-uploaded unofficial remixes

Apple Music has gained support for user-uploaded unofficial remixes, according to TechCrunch, thanks to SoundCloud, a service that can offer support for unofficial remixes, and Dubset, a music rights management company.

SoundCloud is a global online audio distribution platform based in Berlin, Germany, that enables its users to upload, record, promote, and share their originally-created sounds. According to the company’s data, in December 2014, the service attracts more than 175 million unique monthly listeners, while content creators upload about 12 hours worth of audio every minute

Dubset is a music licensing and digital distribution company that creates solutions for DJs, labels, publishers and streaming services. Their proprietary technology, MixBANK, enables legal distribution of unlicensed remixes and DJ mixes by scanning content for copyrighted material and paying relevant rights holders.
