The Great Bulgarian Streaming Scam may well have been scummy, but Spotify got paid

Re: Did it attract other listeners?

Apparently the two fake playlists appeared in Spotify's album chart at No.11 and No.22 if I correctly remember from the story. Charts were invented by the music industry to increase sales - the chart is a form of advertisement (don't tell the BBC, they're not allowed advertisements) - so logically some other people were intrigued enough to play at least some of the tracks. I wonder if the BBC were... I don't listen to "The Chart Show" any more.
