Indie Week was held this past week and featured some interesting panels from artists, producers, and indie labels. One panel featured Louis Posen, founder of Hopeless Records, discussing a concern all indie labels face.
Posen said he believes his company’s streaming numbers were subject to illegitimate streams. One particular track in question was earning around 3,000 streams per day. Then that number jumped up to 35,000 streams for a day for three days, before abruptly returning to its previous numbers.
