This is really bugging me, as I can imagine the outrage if I started to make records & called myself 'Marvin Gaye' or 'Stevie Wonder', or formed a band & called myself 'The Temptations' or similar, yet if you go take a look at the David Bowie page on QoBuz you will find the following:
https://play.qobuz.com/album/h3plijymwy6uc
https://play.qobuz.com/album/uqrko2u0oaoea
https://play.qobuz.com/album/sgvlnxsl7p4ka
https://play.qobuz.com/album/bompyrsvs454b

Is this legal?
If it is, how come this is not being called 'Cultural Appropriation'?
If it is not - how the fuck are they getting away with it?

It's (c)rap, and it would seem two different 'artistes' one rapping in Spanish and one in English. what a pile of (c)rap!

Yes, I know this.
So what?
The links I posted are 100% not 'Official' Bowie tracks, unless you count the imposter using his name.

Fair comment.
The 2 'Donna Summer's' is equally as wrong too. With artists their name is a large part of their entire branding and it should NOT be legally allowed for others to steal it.

Don't be so stupid!
If you cannot even be bothered to set up a trial just to look then that's on you - just stop saying this is effectively 'fake news'.

I have found several artists and musicians who use the name "Bowie" in their names. Some of whom are actually named Bowie. There is no crime as far as I can tell unless they are using the name "David Bowie" which is protected by copyright.

And as I have said, I have found several who are using exactly that name - David Bowie.
at least 2 rap 'artists' plus others.
