How can a song or artist title change after uploading a few weeks?

  1. Open a desktop browser
  2. Go to your profile page and the song uploads. 
  3. Open the song and click “Edit”
  4. Click the Edit button next to the title

Hello,

I have also noticed a few of my uploaded songs with the titles and the artist names changed.  I don't think this is a bug.  it sounds like there is a hacker out there just messing things up.  Because I also cannot edit the song when I try to in my computer.

Hi, long time songbook uploader here,

@Pavla Usually this happens because your song has been "licensed", smule will automatically change the title to their liking. The title will be locked (greyed out) and can no longer be edited. However you can add extra title to it. If you cannot find it in the app, that means the song is restricted in your country.

@Ridz Azuerai Yes, adding symbols, extra characters to title/artist can prevent this (before uploading the song)👌.

@opentype It's not really a bug and reporting won't help. Even if the song shouldn't be licensed they don't care, trust me. Hands down worst customer service ever.

Yep, the song “Africa” is now called “Bite The Bullet.” I guess whatever works. It is Smule! Anything goes! 😜😂

Same with me,many times I've uploaded alex to's careless whispers,the name of the singer always change to geogre michael,and not for long it will be freezed due to copyright issue,although it's different singer,what's the use of "cover" tags that you have to fill when you upload a song then?

It is very annoying i keep uploading songs and they get deleted by smule for being copyrighted , what’s the point of giving us the chance to upload in the first place ?? I only upload the karaoke versions of songs so the singers voice is not on the song but still gets deleted or they change the name of the song and the artist

For example recently my uploaded madonna's song frozen and into the groove got freezed due to copyright issued,but I've found other ppl uploaded identical and very similiar with my song at smule's most rated songbook still intach,and can be use too,seems not fair
