A: The copyright attorneys here would have the best insight into your matter, but your question remains open for three weeks. The issue you're asking about might even be a non-intellectual property issue simply involving digital upload logs the public at large is familiar with. If the website to which you uploaded the files maintains records of when artists post their music, you could ask them if they could provide records of when a song was uploaded, if they hadn't already provided an email or text. Beyond that, the copyright attorneys here would probably have more insight into other investigative resources. Good luck
