Spotify denies allegations it uses ‘fake’ artists to cut royalty costs

Spotify denied the allegations in a statement given to Billboard a couple of days later. “We do not and have never created ‘fake’ artists and put them on Spotify playlists,” a Spotify spokesperson told Billboard in an email. “Categorically untrue, full stop.” Music Business Worldwide has jumped back into the fray to counter Spotify’s rebuttal with a new post detailing its logic as well as listing 50 artists it feels aren’t real. – Rob LeFebvre, Engadget
