How amusing, at a time when lots of people are banging on about online piracy and file sharing up pops a story that highlights how difficult the problem is to resolve. The hard rock band, BuckCherry, discovered the other week that their new album had leaked out online. They put out a statement saying "Honestly, we hate it when this shit happens, because we want our FANS to have any new songs first."
Sounds reasonable until you discover that the album leaked on BitTorrent networks was traced and it turns out the bands manager, Joss Klemme was the person that leaked it. So, how would this sort of thing work in the new world order that is being proposed for Britain I wonder. Is it illegal to share music that the band itself has covertly put out online?
