Blogger Arrested For Leaking GN’R

The guy the internet has to thank (blame?) for early listens of Chinese Democracy — the very same one who had himself a little visit from the feds not so long ago — has been arrested, charged, and released on bail over posting the songs to his site. The AP reports he “faces a maximum of three years in prison if convicted, and five years if it’s found that he did it for commercial gain.” This development was celebrated equally by the RIAA and all people who have actually heard the leak because it is pretty terrible and it’s nice to have someone punished.
