Why is SoundCloud blocked?
Some schools and workplaces block media streaming sites in fear of users breaking copyright laws. That sometimes results in legitimate websites, like SoundCloud, getting blocked. But this is not the only reason.
Some countries like India, China, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, and other restrictive regions block the service due to some content on the platform. Kyrgyzstan banned SoundCloud to curtail some ‘extremist’ content hosted on the music-sharing site. However, the move was widely criticized by its users.
