Bloggers can arrested, the hell you say!

From Yahoo News:

LOS ANGELES – A blogger suspected of streaming songs from the unreleased Guns N' Roses album "Chinese Democracy" on his Web site was arrested Wednesday and appeared in court, where his bail was set at $10,000.

FBI agents arrested 27-year-old Kevin Cogill on Wednesday morning on suspicion of violating federal copyright laws. Cogill appeared in court in the afternoon wearing a T-shirt; his girlfriend sat court and afterward said, "Rally the troops," but declined further comment.

Federal authorities say Cogill posted nine unreleased Guns N' Roses songs on his Web site in June. The songs were later removed.

In later posts, Cogill wrote that the FBI had questioned him and asked his readers if any of them knew a good attorney. He was represented Wednesday by a federal public defender.

According to an arrest affidavit, Cogill admitted to agents that he posted the songs on his Web site. Prosecutors said Wednesday the leak could result in a "significant" financial loss for the band.

Cogill will not face any special Internet restrictions, but was ordered to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Sept. 17.

"Guns N' Roses representatives have been made aware of the arrests and are leaving the matter to the authorities," said Larry Solters, the band's spokesman.

"Chinese Democracy" is a much anticipated — and repeatedly delayed — new album by Guns N' Roses that is more than 10 years in the making. At least one of the album's songs could be heard legally: The band wrote on its Web site in July that its track, "Shackler's Revenge" will be featured on the video game Rock Band 2, slated for release in September.


WTF Axel?
You really think that these leaked songs will affect the sales of your shit record anyhow?

Seriously dude, take a long around...

You know how many people get fuck stupid rich and popular from purposeful leaks of their tracks? Any little bit of drummed up excitement over your old washed out ass should be appreciated and greeted with open fucking arms. But no, you and yours had to go on and be cocktards and throw a dude in jail for basically doing you a decent.

Hey Axel, try to do your best and remember these old adages;

"There is no such thing as bad publicity,"


"Don't be a dick."

Chinese Democracy: OH! Not as ironic as we thought.
