Plagiarized Song

So I tried going through Spotify's method of reporting this, but apparently that only works if you are/represent the original owner of the song, so I'm just gonna copy paste what I said here.

 

----------

 

Offending link:

https://open.spotify.com/album/55POjY3fZvfznMSgKk0pjm?si=mRaj4HgsSruYQpmgAZwScA

 

Notes/other info:

This artist, Kong Song GR, has only one song. This one song is an exact copy of the song One Minute by Deescounted, and Kong Song's version was released 6+ months after Dees's. Google recognized it as Dees's when I played it for it, and as far as I can tell there is no difference between the two.

 

Relevant links:

Deescounted's album: https://open.spotify.com/album/7mNuANkTy5JV3UxZVC1d9d?si=FSwyNgQ_QHOUf9J-JT1vjA

One Minute: https://open.spotify.com/track/3g6DCdWIxLpxYbsd6Sttmc?si=W5FcbHWXT56iuxNXvQYVXw

This honestly scares me, because the original artist has less than a thousand listens on each song, and this Kong Song group has over 22k. Really makes me worried for the little guys here.

 

---------------

So... Yeah. I honestly only found this out because I was trying to find the song on YouTube and discovered that outside of Spotify and a couple other sketchy websites, neither this group or this song under this name exist. Pls fix Spotify thanks

 

BTW I have no association whatsoever with either party

Edit: switched a link around by accident

I would be inclined to agree, but...SmartSelect_20200107-221021_Chrome.jpg

And then there's this field...

SmartSelect_20200107-221038_Chrome.jpg

And the most important one...

These are all required fields. I don't want to be convinced of perjury, but I'm not the owner or at all authorized by them, so I can't really do it that way, can I? If I said I was either one, the information in the notification wouldn't be accurate.

Hello, I just found an allegedly plagiarized song (kitelife - Le Voilier Nuage, which is a straightup copy of the original Frag Out by DJ Assass1n) - I tried to use the form to report it but it still wants me to state that I am the rightsholder/an agent and own the music... Is it safe to proceed and what options should I choose?
