The UCS (Universal Category System) has been updated to 8.1 with a small collection of new sub-categories. One of these is “Ambience-Protest”. That sounds a whole lot like We Are the People, right? We’ve updated most of the filenames and metadata in this library to keep it up to date with the latest UCS standards.
If you own We Are the People, and would like to update the filenames/metadata, you can follow the instructions found on our Previous UCS Post. All links and info have been updated with the latest UCS 8.1 metadata.
If you have any questions or issues, please let us know!
