User Recreated my Old Podcasts And Presenting As Thier Self-Made Playlist

User Recreated my Old Podcasts And Presenting As Thier Self-Made Playlist

I am not sure if this is anything I can do anything about. I used to run a Podcast through Libsyn/Apple (old episodes are still available on my personal website). I transitioned to Spotify Playlists and advertised the newer lists here and got some followers etc. Now one of the said followers has created in duplicate the setlists from my old podcast episodes and is presenting them as their own playlist. I suppose there isn't really anything stopping them from doing that, just as one might recreate an old mixtape or collate a series of songs from a movie (i.e. Marvel MCU music) - but it does actually take me a lot of time to curate all the music, and mix it to create the episodes. So I guess the question is there any sort of intellectual property violation or anything or do I just have to suck it up and take it as a compliment that someone liked it enough to copy it?
