I believe those with tracks are a little concerned about ramifications. Gone are the days, so it seems, that a leaker would receive merely an ear-drum bashing from Beta during a phone-call.

This time around, Guns really are... gonna need the FBI!

Despite intellectual ownership, you can't copyright UNRELEASED material, demos, etc.


And they know that.

It's a scare tactic. If the album was officially out, in stores, they'd have a much larger legal leg to stand on if they went after someone for criminal or legal action.

You can copyright unreleased material, but you don't have much of a leg to stand on because you never offered it to the public, and those with access to it aren't making a profit from it.


The FBI thing is bullshit. Lawyers playing games with fans waiting on this is logical, the FBI raiding peoples houses over dated Simply Red tracks is delusional.

Yeah, good points.


Last time I checked the Feds weren't even really cracking down all that much on piracy anymore. The scare tactics in the mid-2000's pretty much scared away most downloaders, and it costs so much money to tackle the problem of piracy, that they only go after big fish these days. They go after uploaders most of the time now.


The old stories back in the day of little old grandfathers getting $250,000 fines and probation for downloading music were PLANTED untrue stories to begin with.

I think the FBI story was plant by GN'R too.
