For the same reason, your system fails to work for either traditional or copyright-expired compositions. Someone may still own the copyright in a specific recording of a traditional folk tune, but that does NOT mean they own any rights over my, different, performance of that same tune. I have had a highlight muted because of this exact situation; a muted highlight from a live music stream is no use to anyone! And there is no adequate way of contesting the action on these grounds. Copyright in compositions and recordings is separate; get someone who knows the basics of the law to overhaul your systems for dealing with music copyright because they're laughably inadequate at present.
