Like many bands, we use Tunecore to service our music to digital stores. They have an option to automatically add your music to all new stores as they become available. After further investigation, it seems that they have added YouTube Topic as a store. We contacted Tunecore and explained that we never agreed for our music to be placed on YouTube and that streaming our albums in their entirety, as third party videos, that can be shared on any social platform, was not what we would consider a store. After an initially combative stance, they then backtracked and apologized, promising to remove our music from YouTube Topic.
However, it is only because we kicked up a fuss that they offered to remove our music. Any band using Tunecore's automated store option will find that their music is also being added to Topic. This in turn allows for unlimited social media sharing, advertising revenues being collected on your behalf by Tunecore, and songs that you may have wished to have been exclusive to a particular release or platform, no longer being so.
At time of writing our music is still up on YouTube Topic, and our second albumGo Forth and Multiply has also been added. Though tempting for any band for their music to be in as many places as possible, it seems it might be advisable to be far more selective and focused on where your music is available.
