How to report fake Spotify Artist?

Hello everyone! I do not know where to make this thread, but here it is. How do I report an artist for using other people's songs and uploading them to Spotify? They are not my music, but I still think it's a scam. This profile called "MajorMotion" has uploaded songs that are not his work or have any relation to the artists themselves. MajorMotion ones uploaded "Where Are ü Now (Marshmello Remix)" and gained over 100.000 plays. It was renamed with (MajorMotion Remix) He deleted all of his uploads well over a month ago. But now he has uploaded an album and this one has the track "Until Dawn" by Jaeger. Except it's called "The Rise". I don't know the other songs on the album though. His latest single release was clearly G-eazy x Bebe Rexha - Me, Myself & I (Dexter Remix) ? 


So how can we ban this profile?

Wow. Listened to the two songs and they are identical.

 

Let me escalate this to see what proceeds.

A little update. He just deleted "his" whole album. Now he only has 3 songs on the profile, and he just uploaded: 

Jason Derülo - Whatcha Say (noï remix)

I've been confirmed that Spotify took notice of the song you reported. Probably that's why the album disappeared.

 

If you want to report this new song, I was told the best thing to do is tweet @SpotifyCares

Hey, 

 

A similar problem:
We found a fake verified profile of one of our artist: https://open.spotify.com/user/k3studio100
They don't upload any music, they only make fake playlists, pretending to be our artist. But their discograpy does link to our real account https://open.spotify.com/artist/1eZrOVQ8ady3sDTNdG9E4D


Can this fake account be deleted? It contains a profile image with the old band and not the new.

Spotify account named Aseveljet and Sebastian Helin loop own streams. They put twice computer or phone repeat at the night. I think that it's not okay to do like that...?
