SoundCloud and rights

So Soundcloud have updated their subscription model: 

We’re happy to announce the latest way to experience SoundCloud – offline and ad free for just £5.99/month. Listen to all the amazing tracks you can only find on SoundCloud anywhere, anytime with our new SoundCloud Go subscription.

They’re charging the listeners and they’re charging the creators. Where is my royalty cheque SoundCloud? You provide the listening stats for each of the 81 songs under my account so it shouldn’t be too tricky for you to figure out.

Oh, it’s invite only? That’s just peachy.

And while you’re at it, how about figuring out how to tell the difference between a paid content creator account and a free listener account, and using that info to avoid spamming people who pay already pay you with demands for more money just to listen?
