Music Leaker Is Sued Following FBI Investigation

Music Leaker Is Sued Following FBI Investigation

A number of such giant music labels as Universal, Sony and Warner have launched a lawsuit against an individual over obtaining unreleased music created by some of their biggest stars. FBI carried out an investigation, and the individual was traced to Sweden. Apparently, the leaker will stand trial in his home country for illegally publishing music of various artists including Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and Mary J Blige.


The leak of pre-release music has always been a cause for argument between recording labels and artists. The leaks from the popular musicians always featured in online piracy cases, described by the music labels as very damaging forms of illegal music distribution.

Despite the fact that many marketers believe that leaks can be useful for creating buzz, recording labels argue that premature availability means unfair competition and undermines the artist’s decision as to when and where the music should be first heard.

Of course, pre-release leaks can happen at any stage of music production, normally towards the retail environment, but this particular case is quite unusual for a number of reasons – first of all, regarding the point at which the leaked content was obtained.

According to the plaintiffs, between 2010 and 2013 unreleased music began leaking from industry-affiliated US-based email accounts. The unauthorized distribution targeted some of the world’s biggest stars. The recording labels claim that the pre-release music was leaked after they sold the tracks to DJs all over the world. This is where the FBI was involved in the investigation, and a trail brought them to Sweden.

After being started in the US, an investigation into the stolen songs led the prosecutors to Sweden through bank accounts and IP addresses. The Swedish authorities were contacted at this stage. As a result, the investigation led to a 25-year-old local individual. Now he is accused of hacking the email accounts to obtain unauthorized access to music and selling it on for a profit.

This is why the case is so unusual: the defendant hacked into the email accounts and obtained the unreleased songs – in some cases, tracks that might have never been released. According to the prosecution, the individual denied the charges, but the facts are that he made about $12,000 from selling the unreleased music. The man is expected to go on trial in Sweden in May. He may face fines and up to 2 years of jail time.
