Probation for public leaking

A blogger who was a very naughty boy and leaked nine tracks from Guns ‘N’ Roses’ terminally delayed and bloated album Chinese Democracy has been sentenced to a year’s probation for the heinous crime of helping people listen to the record.

‘I never intended to hurt the artist,’ said Kevin Cogill before being sentenced for copyright infringement. ‘I intended to promote the artist because I'm a fan.’

Nonetheless Cogill will have to spend two months under ‘home confinement’ and have the government poke through his computer (don’t even bother trying to delete the porn, they’ll find it). But not only that. He’ll have to record a public service announcement for the Recording Industry Association of America. Now that one will hurt.
