Recently, Spotify has engaged in a streaming fraud purge that has gotten numerous songs removed, estimates range from 760k to 1m. Numerous artists have gotten their songs taken down for being included on fraudulent playlists that use streaming farms. Here's the thing, many of these artists did not ask to be included on these playlists, or had their songs put on their due to the actions of a PR agency, or other party.
Artists will then have their song taken down, and their distributor will say that they cannot reupload with their service.
Please 1) Provide artists more advance warning so they can rectify fraud situations, as not all cases are deliberate
2) Develop alternative corrective actions (ie, discount fraudulent streams from royalty payments)
3) crack down harder on the actual perpetrators here, the shady playlisters. On Twitter, i have seen several cases in which an artist will have their music taken down from a shady playlist, but the playlist is still up!
Please consider 1) Manual authentication once playlists hit certain follower/listener thresholds
2) capcha's on listener accounts to stop bot farms.
3) focusing on detecting fraud accounts more so than artists using them
