Spotify will let artists upload their songs directly

The Spotify upload feature doesn't have any effect on copyright. The feature also doesn't have any exclusivity terms: Artists are free to post their works to other streaming service, or any place they want. Spotify doesn't charge any fees or commissions to upload directly, which artist tend to incur when they use a service like CD Baby or Distrokid to upload their tunes to Spotify and other platforms.
