I stumbled upon an article today that talked about a band trying to get their fans to stream a silent album on spotify overnight. So they could get money to tour. The article is here: http://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2014/mar/19/spotify-streaming-silence-vulpeck-make-money?CMP=twt_gu
So now I have the idea of setting up a scheme where I put a similar thing on spotify and have a old computer in my basement play it 24/7. I would make ~500 dollars per month doing this, not a lot but that is 6k per year towards hookers and blow.
The question is if i were to get caught would it be fraudulent to put an album on spotify and then listen to your own tracks to generate revenue for yourself?
