Guns'n'Roses-Leaker bekommt Besuch vom FBI

Das ist doch mal was: veröffentliche ein Posting zum geleakten „Chinese Democracy“ von Guns'n'Roses ins Netz (vorher auf Nerdcore) und schon stehen Scully und Mulder vor der Tür. Geleakte Alben sind jetzt also schon ein Fall für das Federal Bureau of Investigation und man fragt sich schon, ob die nichts besseres zu tun haben.

Two "Mulder and Scully types" tracked him down at his workplace and questioned him about where he obtained the nine unreleased Guns N' Roses tracks that he distributed through his website, pictured to the right.

The agents also visited him at his California home at 7 a.m. Tuesday, according to Rolling Stone. "I wasn't sure if they were going to come by with a warrant and trash the place, like in the movies," Skwerl told the publication. "It was nothing like that."

The authorities wanted to see the original files, which Skwerl had obtained from an undisclosed source. However, he had already deleted them per Axl Rose's legal staff. So he directed them to copies of the songs that were copied all over the internet after his blog first posted them.
