  4. Streaming Fraud

EmuBands would never recommend engaging with any service/person who guarantees you streams in return for money. We would also recommend never artificially manipulating the number of streams you receive (such as through excessive looping, or repeated plays). EmuBands takes this issue (known as ‘Streaming Fraud’) very seriously – be sure not to encourage your fans to engage in this behaviour either, as you may find your music is removed from digital services who have a zero-tolerance policy regarding streaming fraud and have systems in place to identify this type of behaviour. If your music is found to have generated streams in an artificial way, your music may be removed and any resultant royalties withheld.
