I don't have the money for a copyright lawyer - so what now?

I know this is an old topic but it is important to me as it feels as if I've lost some of my best tracks. OK so, I have been thinking of a way forward on this for some time. Can I simply ask/demand to have my tracks back and put back up on Spotify and ITunes?

Any more advice on this would also be much appreciated.

Fundamentally nothing has changed unfortunately.
You probably have two options: 1) you can write to them and request that they do something with the tracks (either release them back to you or effectively relicense them), or 2) you lawyer up and try things that way.
Only you can make the decision of how much time and effort those songs are worth to you if you go down the second route.
