I have never posted here but I had a question about an artist possibly passing off the work of other artists as their own work, but on an industrial scale.
There is an 'artist' who has released a whopping 105 albums since 2018 which more or less includes the complete works of Mozart plus some compositions by Haydn, Bach and a few others as well.
Given that there is no record anywhere on the internet of this person as a musician or recording artist, much less one with such an impressive canon, please could someone tell me whether it is commonplace for 'ghost artists' to feature on Spotify in this way? Is the sole purpose just to hoover up as many plays as possible and claim the royalties?
I may be doing this person a huge disservice which is why I haven't named them. Alternatively, I may just be naive and people will tell me that this is standard practice on Spotify.
Either way, if anyone could shed any light on this, it would be interesting to find out more.
