    Default Stop Posting Links to the Album Everyone

    as per Brett's incredibly clear instructions:

    People didn't realize the songs on one site could actually be downloaded, I don't want to say the site, but I think everyone knows what it is now. So I understand the misunderstanding there.

    Streaming to listen to them is one thing (and even then it's probably not happening legally), but putting up sites that have plugins that allow the content to be downloaded for free is not OK, and won't be supported by us.

    And yes if they're on YouTube, it's fine to link to them. Let YouTube police their own shit. And yes stuff can be downloaded on YouTube with a little fiddling, but I'm not going to stop people from linking YouTube videos on here.

    Thanks for understanding. Let's not promote ripping off the band who this site is dedicated to. We don't want to have to ban people who keep doing it. So if you are doing it, please stop...thanks.

    Oh and if you're unsure about a site, just ask one of the mods or admins.

    Seriously guys. I may start just banning ip addresses from ever being able to log on to the site again if you post links to "free options" on this cd.

    Gentlemen, just a suggestion. Is there anyway to change Brett's original thread to bright red to make it stand out like a sore thumb?

    This is why labels (and often bands) are clueless. The album's been released outside the US and now it's out there to be had. Instead of people in the US being able to buy it now, just about everyone here (and elsewhere in the US) is going to either A) download a free, non-licensed (copyright infringed) version of the album--aka bootleg--and some or most will eventually buy it, but not all, or B) download a paid, non-licensed (copyright infringed) version of the album and a few to some might pay for another one in the US.

    It's BEYOND dumb. The multiple global release date model doesn't work anymore, and it makes ALL of the trouble you went through to prevent a leak WORTHLESS. Does anyone from Interscope or the band come here? Read that again.

    Abstain, people. It will make the climax that much better. Or that's what seenbad taught me, anyway.

    Sheesh, it's just a few days.

    People should buy the album instead of stealing it. Give your money to VH. In fact they should show Brett some appreciation for his work here and buy the deluxe version through this site.

    Agreed 100%. They were doing everything right on this from a PR standpoint; but, this just seems like a really dumb move. Just release it as soon as it's ready. Why take a chance on losing sales to illegal downloads?

    Seriously. If someone wants to download it for free, they can and will find it. No need to post links here.

    I agree. There is no place for illegal downloads on this forum. The Emperor was invited to a private show which shows he and the links must have a really solid relationship with the VH camp. Don't mess it up!
