Is it possible to see what license an individual song has on Soundcloud? Some of the songs have Creative Commons but others appear to not have any license.

Artists of songs without a CC license have opted for all rights to be reserved.

All Rights Reserved

So if you do not see something similar to the following (Creative Commons license icons below the genre):

license appears under labels

Then all rights are reserved.

I also notice that any track with a longish description will get a "show more ▾" link. The CC license information may be hidden under that – Harry Wood Apr 16 '15 at 11:57
