New star’s album “Michael” has already appeared on BitTorrent trackers all over the world before its official release date, which is December, 14th.
This album of Michael Jackson followed the way of lots of other hotly anticipated albums that have leaked to the Internet and now can be found on any BitTorrent tracker website throughout the world. The leak of this particular album happened over a week prior to its official release date – December, 14th.
New album called “Michael” contains 10 Michael Jackson’s tracks recorded from 2001 to 2009. This leak means that all of them are currently available to anyone who is able to use BitTorrent client, and they are not the snippets that a label, Sony, has been offering piecemeal in order to spur interest, but the full-fledged songs.
Although this leak will most likely have no effect on sales (i.e. lead to any tangible decline), it can become the useful prove for those rights owners that are looking forward to persuading US Congress to pass the controversial COICA legislation (Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act). The latter is supposed to provide the Justice Department with an expedited process for tracing and closing down domains of websites involved in providing access to illegal downloads, as well as to online streaming or sale of copyrighted material and counterfeit products.
Actually, no artist has been spared having their album leak to BitTorrent websites. So, Michael Jackson is just following in the footsteps of many other artists, such as U2, Eminem, Kings of Leon and many, many more. The most interesting fact in all this is that some of the artists have shown quite curious responds to the cases of leak. For example, U2 the band made a decision to respond by offering free streaming of their own album “No Line On The Horizon” on MySpace network.
Although Sony never expressed its attitude to the leak, one can be sure that it isn’t that happy and is going to somehow respond to news. While many fans of Michael Jackson can already enjoy his works for free, this may have the opposite effect over time, especially if Sony decided to take a closer look at last Billboard’s list of “5 Easy Steps to Plug Online Music Leaks.”
