Music streaming service, Spotify accused of fraud
Spotify has responded to a report from earlier this week on Vulture that alleged the streaming service was paying producers to create songs under fake names that were then put on premium playlists to generate money for the service.
“This upfront payment saves the company from writing fat streaming checks that come with that plum playlist placement, but tricks listeners into thinking the artists actually exist and limits the opportunities for real music-makers to make money,” reads the article.
