DJ Protests SoundCloud's "Strikes" Policy With Reddit AMA

This morning, Berlin “internet genius and music pioneer” DJ Detweiler took to Reddit to announce that he was about to pull his remixes off SoundCloud to avoid the penalties of the company’s new “strikes” rule, which holds that an account will be deleted if it breaks copyright violations three times. The policy has sparked outrage since it started to purge copyright violations, bootlegs and unlicensed tracks last week because the algorithm has in some cases penalized artists for uploading their own music to their page.
