Hello fellas, I got a question about using SoundCloud music in previews. I’m gathering the songs with their API into a custom made player but I’m a bit confused which kind of license is allowed.

The following are available in their search engine:
  • To modify commercially
  • To use commercially
  • To share
  • To listen to

Which of them is safe for use? The first too should be ok I guess, but there are really nice songs under the third kind of licence that I really like to use but I’m not sure if it’s allowed here or not.

It’s granted that every song will have its relative author credited. Some official answer would be appreciated. :)

It’s always best to ask author’s permission if you’re not sure :)

They are already labelled with the licenses I wrote above. The question is if it’s ok to use “to share” licenses only in the preview. Some insight from the envato staff would be appreciated. I’ll contact the authors directly anyway.
