@unfa how long in duration?
@setthemfree 30 seconds. Logarithmic sine sweep.
@unfa ...indeed it has removed the upload:

Hi ∿ und̷e̷l̷ě̷t̷e̷d̷,
It looks like your track
"Sine sweep from 20hz to 20khz, 30 seconds"
might contain or be a copy of "Super Secret Of Soundsville Song" by The Powerpuff Girls, which is owned by owned by Rhino Records P&D in certain territories.
As a result, your track has been removed from your profile for the time being.

@unfa @kof @luka Filed a dispute; already a quite unpleasant experience - first it asks about my gender and age, then a full address, phone number, etc. Also the process is framed in a way that is clearly broken - there is no options about public domain, fair use or "music theory 101 - uncopyrightable". This has a very unpleasant feeling of a dystopian Orwellian bureaucracy to it. And how absurd the screen shots look given the upload title. I guess time to say "No Thanks" to SoundCloud as well.
@unfa @kof @luka They have unblocked the upload; it's a pity one has to go through this kind of digital "prove you are not guilty on our terms" process on a false positive. And I'm curious what about all the other false positives - are they somehow unblocked too if they hit the same "content id"? Here's the upload: https://soundcloud.com/yurb/sine-sweep-from-20hz-to-20khz-30-seconds
@unfa lol, WHAT?
@apoorv569 That's right! Because some tracks contain some similar sweeps - such a generic and content-free audio file gets flagged as a copyright violation. I wonder what would happen if I tried to uploade white noise...
I wanted to inspect Soundcloud's audio encoding quality and trade-offs, but it was unexpectedly prevented by ContentID...
@unfa that is stupid TBH. 😂
@unfa I HATE content ID. Sure, the idea behind it is good but the system is so broken. So easy to do stuff like this.
@blackfire I haven't tried YouTube yet, and that's probably gonna work the same way.
