Spotify has powerful tools used to identify and remove podcasts or podcast episodes containing unlicensed third-party music from their platform. When Spotify determines a podcast contains infringing content, they will contact the podcast's hosting provider (RSS.com). The infringement claim and notice of content removal from Spotify directories will be provided to RSS.com, which will be forwarded to the podcast account owner.
If you believe the infringement claim to be in error, please login to your Spotify for Podcasters account or reach out to Spotify for Podcasters Support.
They will be able to provide more information, or instructions how to dispute the claim. We have no control over what content Spotify or any other platform allows.
RSS.com reserves the right to remove any content we determine is in violation of our Terms of Service, which includes unlicensed content hosted on our site. Any infringement claims from Spotify or other non-rightsholders will be reviewed and acted upon in a case-by-case basis. Any official infringement claims sent directly from the rightsholder or their representatives will be taken down immediately in accordance with the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act)
