Is this concidered as "artificially promoted content"


One of my friends streamed their own music on repeat for her art shows. She used the replay option to showcase her music to all the people who came to see her paintings for about 10 hours every show. She wasn't trying to get more views or royalties, but the adds still played through her events. (Unknowingly) This caused her streams to go up about 5-8,000 plays on her public Spotify for Artists account. After reading the user guidlines, (8.8 , 8.23) (and hearing about users trying to make money faking views) I'm worried Spotify will delete and ban her account since they have no way of knowing that all those streams from one person were publicly played. Would the Spotify count these views as artificially promoted content?

Hey there @stickybackriver,

thanks for posting in the community !


I honestly don't believe there's anything you need to be afraid of.

If you or she still aren't pleased or think something will happen to the account, reach out to Spotify for Artist support through this page and you'll get all the answers needed.


Hope this helps =)
