    It's horrible. People are justifying it by saying this has always happened but never has it been so easy or has anyone built a mass-market business around it. You used to have to find a ghost writer and pay them a ton of money to do it. This just makes it too easy.

    I hate the concept of buying Soundcloud plays. It totally undermines the point of the site, which is to make it easier for artists to share their music with fans and with other artists. It's like buying YouTube views or something. There's not really any reason for anyone besides the uploader to care how many plays there are. Fixing the count is about as pointless as those joke Geocities counters that said "12375830 visitors to this page since January 7, 1996".

    Though retweets and "shares" i feel differently about - those were designed as spamming tools from day one, so these guys are just using them how they're supposed to be used.

    And as for the the production? Pfft. There have been stables of musicians writing songs without attribution since the earliest days of music. We have centuries of evidence showing the only people who have a problem with that are self-important artistes who think everyone should be starving and miserable like they are. It's a business, guys. The ghostwriters are getting paid to do something they enjoy, and the customers are paying to keep their brand current in the area of the industry they enjoy (performing). Everyone wins.

    I imagine this would be an interesting resource for marketing/ad companies that want to add music to a presentation / campaign / commercial, and not worry about any copyright issues.

    i also realized that hip hop artists have already been purchasing clipart beats for years - there's a website (cant think of the name) but basically it's a hiphop istockphoto.
