Sometimes I run into artists that effectively gain visibility by publishing cover music with original artist "referred" so that the cover album is also visible through the original artists portfolio. For example:
I was wondering if this is actually legal and according to Spotify EULA? Because this gives quite massive "free publicity" to totally irrelevant artists that just ride for example in this case on Ramin Djawadi's visibility.
If it is legal then I guess there is no point in publishing cover tunes without doing this, but it feels in many ways wrong, hence the question.
