Man arrested for posting Guns N' Roses songs on Web

Man arrested for posting Guns N' Roses songs on Web

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Federal officials on Wednesday arrested a man on suspicion of violating copyright laws for placing songs on the Internet from an unreleased album by rock band Guns N' Roses.

Kevin Cogill, 27, who has no known direct affiliation with Guns N' Roses, posted nine tracks from the band's upcoming album "Chinese Democracy" on his Web site, said Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The long-awaited upcoming album from Guns N' Roses, a hard-rocking group that came to fame in 1987 with the album "Appetite for Destruction," is the band's first since its 1993 release "The Spaghetti Incident?"

An FBI agent said in an affidavit that Cogill admitted to posting the tracks on the Internet at www.antiquiet.com.

Cogill removed the tracks from the Web site, but by then the songs had circulated widely, Eimiller said.

Cogill, who appeared in court on Wednesday on a charge of unlawfully leaking the songs, faces a maximum of three years in prison if convicted, and five years if it's found that he did it for commercial gain. He was released on bail.

If he goes to prison, he'll probably still get out before the album is released. lol

then, wouldn't he be able to put them on his website, without being convicted, because of the double jeopardy law?
